Folk Schools in Social Change: A Partisan Guide to the International Literature.
Paulston, Rolland G.
A partially annotated bibliography of literature dealing with folk schools throughout the world has been arranged under the following heading: (1) philosophical and historical material; (2) folk schools in social movements; (3) area and developmental studies; (4) methods and materials; and (5) related materials on popular education, social movements, and social change. Folk schools are defined as a type of residential adult education carrying out both adjustive and social change-oriented programs. Emphasis in this guide is placed particularly on those seeking new social, economic, or cultural relations, and also on those trying to adjust students to existing reality or to defend an ethnic minority or subculture. The compiler states that this collection on the folk school experience in different national settings offers a research tool to facilitate examination of the contribution of folk schools to induced change. Where appropriate, code letters have been included to indicate geographical areas mentioned in the work. Within each section the entries are listed alphabetically by author. Author and geographical area indexes are provided. (LH)
