Justification, Need and Ideology in Adult Education--The British Context.
Bell, Desmond L.; Courtney, Sean
Adult Education, v29 n3 p194-200 Spr 1979
Because of serious economic recessions, adult educators are casting about for a unified philosophical core to justify their existence. The Russell report and Venables report attempt to justify adult education. Different interpretations of need entail radically opposing educational concepts. If the formal education concept cannot rest on a unified notion of need, neither can adult education. (CSS)
