Adult Education Legislation in Ten Countries of Europe.
European Bureau of Adult Education, Bergen (Netherlands).
The booklet reports on the results of a meeting of 10 nations held, under the auspices of the European Bureau of Adult Education, to make determinations about the present and future states of legislation which affects adult education. The 10 nations represented were: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, West Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. There is a brief survey of present conditions in each of the nations. The conference's recommendations concerning future legislation are outlined within the following framework: objectives and tasks of adult education; organization and structure; financial support; educational leave; staff, status, and working conditions; and training for teachers and organizers of adult education. The major portion of the booklet is a comparative survey of current (through July 1974) legislation in each of these areas for each of the countries. Most of the material is presented in either outline or tabular form. A separate section tabulates new laws on adult education in the Federal Republic of Germany. A final section lists adult education laws and regulations for each of the countries. (PR)
