Recurrent Education and Lifelong Learning. World Yearbook of Education 1979.
Schuller, Tom, Ed.; Megarry, Jacquetta, Ed.
To bring a comparative education perspective to the practical problems of recurrent education and lifelong learning, the essays in this collection are written by authors from around the world. Parts 1 (Orientation) and 2 (Major Issues) clarify concepts and issues of general application. Topics include work/leisure/education life cycle, definitions and distinctions between recurrent education and lifelong learning, research insights into adult learning, financial implications, and educational implications of changes in western society including the democratization of work. Part 3 contains nine empirical studies on international developments in the U.S., France, Norway, Sweden, West Germany, eastern Europe, Africa, China, and Asia and the South Pacific (particularly Australia). The four essays in part 4 focus on trends in Britain: recurrent education, comprehensive system for adult education; coordination of vocational education for adults, and the Open University and the future of continuing education. Short summaries of each essay are provided along with a final chapter of discussion and synthesis, biographical notes on the twenty contributors, and a consolidated bibliography and index. (JT)
