As part of a UNESCO program to assist the government of Greece in the preparation and implementation of a five-year plan for the development of adult education, an expert in the field and four Fellows were chosen to study adult education trends in Scotland, England, Denmark, France, Switzerland, and the Federal Republic of Germany. As a result of their study, and following several changes in the Greek government, six proposals were made to the Greek Ministry of Education. These were to: establish an independent service for adult education, equal to that for other educational levels; establish an inspectorate; reconstitute NELEs (Nomos Adult Education Committee); appoint necessary staff and provide training facilities; initiate a building program; and appoint a committee for higher adult studies and provide resources for programs of continuing education. In the context of considering adult education as a response to the educational needs of men and women, the present Greek system of adult education is widespread but without central organization. Proposals were offered in October 1972 for reorganizing those aspects of adult education which are the responsibility of the Ministry of Education. These consisted of a refinement of and elaboration on the six proposals from the aforementioned study. (AG)
