The Education of Adults

The term “adult education” as used here, includes all forms of education outside the school system for persons who have left school, or have not been to school, who are seeking to improve their fund of knowledge and skills in order to better their lives. It ranges from institutional courses designed to impart specific information or to promote learning of conventional subjects, through to educational activities intended to bring about an improvement in general education, impart cultural values or specific technical skills, but not directed to meet formal course requirements. It includes the educational aspects of all activities which promote social and economic development - indeed everything resulting in value change for the individual and for the community.
