Description

Reviews

Drawing on the expertise of some of the foremost leaders in rural education, this book presents a practical framework for understanding lifelong education and how various formal and nonformal educational organizations in the rural community enhance this process. It maintains that meeting the educational needs of youth and adult learners demands a new and broader perspective on ways of fulfilling their educational concerns in a changing environment. Part One provides an overview and conceptualization of lifelong education, the community, and their interaction. In Part Two, the formal and nonformal educational providers that comprise the lifelong education system and their uniqueness to the rural community are examined and analyzed. Part Three provides an in-depth description of available resources that educators and other professionals working in rural America can use to understand and enhance their practice. In addition, the final chapter provides a critical perspective on the future prospects for rural lifelong education.

"… Galbraith and the contributors to this volume perform an excellent job of weaving together the practice and theory of adult education, rural communities, and lifelong learning...." -- Catherine P. Zeph, MPAEA Journal, Fall 1992.

 "As a graduate faculty member and dissertation director I have recommended, and will continue to recommend, this book as an orientation to rural education issues..." -- Allen B. Moore, Adult Education/ICAD University of Georgia, Athens.
