Learning Opportunities for Adults. Volume III: The Non-Participation Issue.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France).
This collection of studies focuses on the problem of non-participation in adult education. The collection is the third of four volumes presenting general and national studies of issues, problems, and trends in adult education. (See Note for other volumes in the series.) The first study presented, Motivation and Participation with Special Reference to Non-Traditional Forms of Study, is a general analysis of the reasons for negative attitudes toward learning. It suggests that it might be possible to remove such attitudes by developing new types of learning situations. The next seven case studies explore the non-participation phenomenon in seven countries--Denmark, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Concluding the volume, two studies of attempts to appeal to particular groups are presented. Involving Industrial Workers in Post-Compulsory Education in Germany contains a global view of the problem of getting German industrial workers into adult education. A Case Study Based on an Urban Overspill Housing Estate is an evaluation of an educational program designed for people living on a housing estate in England. (YLB)
