Recurrent Education: A Strategy for Lifelong Learning.
Kallen, Dennis; Bengtsson, Jarl
The purpose of this report is to clarify the concept, main features, and objectives of the "recurrent education" issue and to spell out the implications that this approach will have for educational and socio-economic policy making. It is suggested that acceptance of the "recurrent education" proposal implies not only a major turning point in educational policies but that it also has important consequences for social and economic policies. Thus there is a need for a coordinated approach and for the establishment of appropriate planning and policy making mechanisms for dealing with the issue. Through long term planning and policy perspective together with immediate short term planning such a reorganization could take place. Further implications of the "recurrent education" approach as it relates to the labor market, to the use of mass media, to social security provision, and to the social, economic, and cultural sectors at large are included.
