Striving for Synergy in Adult Education as Equal Partners. A Position Paper for the Committee on Social Justice in Celebration of International Women's Year to Promote Dialogue, Discussion, and Planning for Elevation of the Status of Women Through Adult Education.
Laws, Ruth M.
In the realm of continuing education, synergy, when used to mean a working together on all phases of human rights, implies the promotion of an adult education vehicle to eliminate the cultural lag in the status of women. Recent United Nations actions (such as the establishment of International Women's Year and the World Plan of Action's pressing for the full reconsideration of women's role in politics, education and training, employment and related economic matters, health and nutrition, family organization and family roles, population, and housing) are encouraging. Some general recommendations designed to implement the World Plan of Action's goals for the 1975-80 period include: special efforts to involve women in public affairs and to make the public at large aware of women's role in politics; target dates for the elimination of illiteracy; special training programs in economic and social development for rural women; free compulsory elementary education for girls and boys; inexpensive child care coinciding with school or training hours; special part-time programs for continuing education; elimination of bias from programs, curricula, and textbooks; and co-educational vocational programs open on the basis of aptitude and abilities rather than sex stereotypes.
