Adult education is a practice in which adults engage in systematic and sustained self–educating activities in order to gain new forms of knowledge, skills, attitudes, or values.It can mean any form of learning adults engage in beyond traditional schooling, encompassing basic literacy to personal fulfillment as a lifelong learner. In particular, adult education reflects a specific philosophy about learning and teaching based on the assumption that adults can and want to learn, that they are able and willing to take responsibility for that learning, and that the learning itself should respond to their needs.
in my opinion adult education is nessessary because if adult is educated then atomaticaly the youth will also become consious about the value of education  like if parents are educated they will surely want there child or the youth to be educated . in this way it helps in the national as well as social pragress also . like it is also said that a n educated family is a helthy family(for society) . and also it is being seen that know a days more and more adults are trying to make themself modern so that they can compet with the world . but it is also a  difficult task to educate the adults but it can be achived if we take right disions
