Recurrent Education, Policy and Development in OECD Countries: Recurrent Education in the Federal Republic of Germany.
Rudolph, Hedwig; And Others
This report, part of a series on the state of recurrent education in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) member countries, focuses on recurrent education in West Germany. The West German thrust for continuing adult education has come from business, industry, and the 1969 Labor Promotion Act which publicly funds vocational training or retraining for adults wanting to enter or reenter the labor market. Section 1 examines elements of recurrent education in the present West German educational system including leave of absence for educational purposes, legal provisions, tariff agreements, administrative regulations, provisions of public funds, the Labor Promotion Act, and regional laws on adult education. Section 2 focuses on future plans for the reconstruction of the educational system to include recurrent education plans and discusses leaves of absence, public funding, reappraisal of the Labor Promotion Act, and possible bills in the provincial legislatures. Section 3 assesses the overall future of recurrent education in West Germany. (DE)
