A Systems Design for Classification and Utilization of Indian Adult Education for Development Purposes.
Stambler, Moses
There is a growing recognition in India of the significant role nonformal adult education can play in achieving national and individual developmental objectives. Traditional formal education with its greatest benefits for a small elitist group will not contribute significantly toward the resolution of major socioeconomic problems. Adult education is an important existing strategy that can be further developed as a major nonformal strategy. Currently, adult education is beginning to assume two major new role tasks, as lifelong education for all levels of society and as a major component in education for developmental strategies. A limitation of adult education, however, is the lack of an organizational framework to systematically build and improve operations. The systems classification of this proposal would provide classification for self-analysis, gathering, classifying, evaluating, and diffusing information about adult education programs in India. The model includes: (1) Identifying Characteristics (organization/administration, program objectives, and time allocation); (2) Setting (needs assessment, culture/economic/civic/scientific context, and other area programs); (3) Program Structure and Function (facilities, philosophy, personnel, clientele, curriculum, and processes); and (4) Output: Evaluation and Feedback (pre- and posttests, interviews, questionnaires, on-the-job records, research, cost/benefit analysis, internal/external efficiency, and feedback).
