Democracy without education is
meaningless. It is education and enlightenment that lifts a nation to
the heights of progress and greatness. Unfortunately, the situation as
it obtains in India in respect of education is not only distressing but
disgraceful and deplorable. At present about 60% of the people in India
are illiterate; they cannot differentiate a buffalo from a black mole.
Adult education is needed because it is a powerful auxiliary and an
essential incentive to primary education. No program of compulsory
universal education can bear fruit without the active support and
co-operation of adults.
social education is needed in order to
guide in spending their leisure in healthful recreations and useful
activities. Lastly, illiteracy and ignorance is a sin; an illiterate
adult is a burden on society. A The difficulties have to be overcome
either by cleverness, or by fact or by compromise, or may be, by
intentional avoidance. Only then we can hope to spread Adult Education.
The purpose of all good teaching is to produce changes in human
behavior. All adult education teacher must adopt a positive approach;
adult education emancipates people is the most important.
