Bhola, H. S.
International Review of Education/Internationale Zeitschrift fuer Erziehungswissenschaft/Revue Internationale de l'Education, v44 n5-6 p485-506 1998
Asserts that the forces of globalization have overwhelmed the historical political-cultural mission of adult education today by focusing exclusively on productivity. States that world summits have resulted in declarations disabusing the ideas of profits above people, but the resulting policies have not reflected these. Urges adult educators to create curricula that promote individual fulfillment and democratic participation. Contains 41 references. (VWC)
