Recurrent Education: Trends and Issues.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France). Centre for Educational Research and Innovation.
The document, consisting of three parts, focuses on recurrent education and the need for more effective deployment of educational resources within member countries of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. The first section discusses the rationale for recurrent education. Recurrent education presents an educational opportunity wherein education is presented during one's lifetime and alternates with other activities. It involves the closer integration between formal education and adult education thereby promoting equal educational opportunities, meeting manpower needs, and increasing social flexibility. The second section focuses on the present progress and problems of recurrent education and presents an empirical description and partial assessment of developments which have taken place towards recurrent education within both the formal educational system and the world of work. The third section presents an agenda for the future and immediate policy implications in the following areas: coordination and consultation, budgeting, policies for the 16-19 age group, admission policies and certification, new personnel requirements, employment policies, and research. The discussion is supplemented with tables and an annex is included on the framework for monetary developments in recurrent education. (Author/EC)
