State Influence on Adult Education in Britain and Denmark: The Case of the Residential Colleges.
Lieven, Mike
Studies in Higher Education, v16 n1 p29-40 1991
The paper compares institutional, legal, and political structures of adult residential colleges in Britain and Denmark and concludes that there are inadequate institutional safeguards in Britain, allowing the state to dominate nominally independent institutions. Danish folk high schools enjoy institutional safeguards against state power but suffer from a lack of centralized monitoring of standards. (Author/DB)
