Radical Ideas in Adult Education.
Ohliger, John
The outline for an adult education colloquim states 17 discussion questions. Under each question, the outline refers to appropriate items on an eight page, 81-item, annotated bibliography. The first of three topical areas, ideas about people, considers: all people's desire to learn and their rough equality in intelligence; common people's ability to control their own affairs; and the problems of the advantaged and privileged as opposed to the disadvantaged and underprivileged. The second area, ideas about society, considers: the small proportion of the country's people who actually run it; the need for radical structural change in the economic-political system; the potential of radical structural change to enable people to love more than hate; the need for a spitirual dimension to radical change; and the need to reverse the trend toward increased technocratic control. The third area, ideas about adult education, covers: the connection between education and social life; the value of knowledge as an experience in itself; the importance of personal exploration in the learning process; the nonneutral content of education; the conservatism of standard brand adult education; and the review of adult education as all those activities of the chronologically mature in which learning is involved.
