Entrepreneurial Achievement or Social Action? - Differing Rationales of Adult Education Programs for Value and Attitude Change.
Rivera, William McLeod
Three socio-psychological programs are highlighted here: "cultural literacy," achievement motivation, and group dynamics. The introduction reviews their common aim: to provoke significant, abrupt changes in adults, i.e. changes that affect the value and attitudinal orientations of the individual in a short period of time. The objectives and techniques of these programs are surveyed in the first section. Then brief definitions of development, growth and change are put forward and certain subtleties analyzed between total and partial change. The final section relates the realities of educational policy to the political objectives sought by these programs. (Author)
