An Introduction to Lifelong Education.
The concept of lifelong education has become a key issue in educational planning. The author, a theorist and practitioner in adult education and a member of the UNESCO Secretariat since 1948, suggests how lifelong education can be promoted and highlights some of the problems it involves. The book is in two parts. In the first, the author tries to show the logical and organic development of lifelong education in its various stages and identifies a number of challenges which require an intellectual, physical, and emotional readiness. The study continues with a number of analyses of the significance, dimensions, and objectives peculiar to lifelong education, and closes with proposed elements of a strategy for educational action. It stresses the necessity of linking together, in both thought and achievement, the objective and processes of education as applied to children, adolescents, and adults. (Author/EA)
