The Planner and Lifelong Education. Fundamentals of Educational Planning, 25.
The three sections making up the main body of this publication look at lifelong education from three successive approaches at different levels. An introduction briefly reviews factors influencing the rapid spread of lifelong education--anthropological, socioeconomic, and political. Through a series of questions emerges the idea that lifelong education involves the promotion of individual and self-education. In section 1 lifelong education is considered as the principle of a model for planning developed with the aid of utopian thinking which needs to be defined in terms of its status and legitimacy. Section 2 assesses the use of lifelong education as a frame of reference for the current development (changes, reforms, and innovations) of educational systems. The final section considers lifelong education as a series of practical rules which should be applied, for instance, when setting up planning methods within educational subsystems. Appendixes include a list of suggested criteria for the selection of pilot experiments for study and evaluation and a grid for analyzing experiments (1973 version) with supplements for experiments involving adults.
