The rapid dwindling of classes in the upper grades of U.S. grammar and high schools has been often noted, and many suggestions as to the improvement of the system of education have been emphasized by reference to this tendency. It is clear that after all that has been done, the attendance of pupils, particularly in the elementary schools, is still in an unsatisfactory condition, and this condition becomes more unsatisfactory in the later years of the school course. In order, however, that any...

Experiments measured the effectiveness and efficiency of audio tape recordings using "time-compressed speech" compared to those using normal recording rates in an audio-tutorial system. The experimental tapes were compressed to 60 percent of the original rate of delivery. Results showed that the rate of speech made no difference in the students' achievement. The time-compressed recording group had a 12.3 percent saving of time as compared to the control group, but this saving is not...

Empirical research on adult learning conducted by Jack Mezirow in the 1970s was revolutionary and groundbreaking and contributed to the creation of a critical theory of adult learning. His influence has remained at the forefront of adult education theory for over two decades. It is timely to consider whether other empirical research has contributed in like manner to the field of adult learning. A selective review of transformational literature suggested that little innovation equal to the...

A relevant question for educators is how adult learning and education can cultivate change with individuals and groups. M.D. Hohn (1998) identifies four types of change: change by exception, incremental change, pendulum change, and paradigm change. A change agent tries to bring about a change deliberately. The change process is transformative, is political, involves learning, and takes place over a period of time. Adult educators frequently act as change agents. Literature describing the change...

To what extent was social change on center stage during adult education's formative years? Whose vision embraced social change and whose did not? What factors led to the decline of social action as a goal of adult education, and what factors suggest renewed interest in social goals? This paper examines these questions, beginning in the 1920s with the vision of Eduard Lindeman and John Dewey. It considers the contradictory roles of adult education practice bringing learners into conformity with...

Malcolm Knowles laments the paucity of "thinking, investigating, and writing about adult learning" in the opening sentence of his theoretical framework of "Andragogy" (1998, p. 35). Knowles' central argument is that we learn differently as adults from how we learn as children, so we should tailor adult education accordingly. Knowles highlighted his position in the very title of his 1983 article, "Adults Are Not Grown-Up Children as Learners." Indeed, Knowles has...

This paper explores the ideas of six adult educators from the 1920s to determine the relevance of their thinking to modern adult educators. Three were chose from Britain: Albert Mansbridge, Basil Yeaxlee, and Richard Tawney. From the United States, three influential theorists in the area were Edward Thorndike, John Dewey, and Eduard Lindeman. During the period in which they produced their most visionary work, Britain found itself in a time of major economic decline while the United States was...

Eduard Lindeman (1885-1953) is considered a major philosopher of adult education in the United States. Lindeman advocated the use of adult learning groups and believed that adult education was a force for constructive social action. In his most important work, "The Meaning of Adult Education" (1926), Lindeman discussed four principles of adult education: (1) education is a life-long process; (2) adult education is non-vocational; (3) adult education should emphasize situations, not...

On a high level of generalization, this essay traces the basic strains in the adult education enterprise to the differing pressures of clientele demand and academic respectability, and suggests that the kind of task differentiation represented by a division between credit and non-credit work may mitigate the tensions. In a postscript, Harry L. Miller focuses on the implications of this proposal on a more particular level, the university. He suggests that there may be more than two sources for...
