Summary

Continuing education of adults plays a vital role in national development and in promoting political and social change. Ways in which adult education affects political change include: increasing the literacy of adults so that they can become responsible citizens; unifying multilingual, multiracial societies through the teaching of English; improving the adults' ability to participate fully in industry and commerce; teaching the advantages of cooperation among independent countries; encouraging participation in international programs for peace; and encouraging the development of leadership qualities. The influences of adult education on social change include: improvement in living and health standards; creative use of leisure time; family budgeting instruction; procedures in family planning; and opportunities for young dropouts to receive further education, and thus reduce their frustration and hostility. In Zambia, there are many agencies that are participating in the field of adult education, and notable progress has been made. (DB)
