[Adult Education in Nigeria.]
Odokara, Elijah O.
Focusing on eastern Nigeria, these studies describe educational planning to combat anomia (uncertainty and despair) in war-ravaged rural areas; the role of the University of Nigeria in social action, womens education, young farmers' clubs, and other activities aimed at postwar reconstruction; a proposal for improving family life education for future homemakers as well as for mature women; and a series of community development pilot projects designed to alleviate rural poverty by offering vocational education to school leavers and unskilled industrial workers. An analysis is also made of a precolonial community in the Kalabari region, with attention to such aspects as the social and religious hierarchy, child rearing, and various forms of adult training and initiation. Two tables and 11 references are included. (LY)
