Transcript GREAT BRITAIN AFTER THE WAR. 77 E.—The Education of the Adult. One-half of every community must always be above the age up to which education, in the widest sense, should be the sole concern. These, too, must be educated, if we are to escape from living too much under the palsied hand of the last generation! The community must provide for the continued culture even of its mature members, in order that they may efficiently discharge their responsibilities as producers of the nation's wealth, guardians of the nation's children, and governors of the nation's destiny. Voluntary effort, as we see it in the activities of churches, trade unions, clubs, etc., will cany on much of this "organisation of leisure.' Some of it will doubtless long be left to the commercial enterprise which now provides us with the " pictures," theatres and music-halls. Some of it, again—as, for example, the provision of " Extension " lectures—is clearly one of the tasks of every live University. But it is plain that in order to secure education as well as entertainment, &n increasing amount of organised provision for the adult should be made by the Central and Local Education Authorities : e.g., the organisation of public lectures, the extension of facilities for home reading and study, the development of reference libraries and newsrooms, museums, art galleries, botanical and zoological gardens, the increase of organised opportunities for travel, the establishment of public cinematograph shows, concert halls and theatres—all as a policy of " organising leisure,' for the whole community. Adult education, in this wide sense, must be made one of the principal items of expenditure of our Central and Local governing bodies. It may fairly be claimed that, as a contribution to this part of our educational system, no more promising enterprise was ever set going in this country than the classes built up by the efforts of the Workers' Educational Association. This method of education, in which a group of students voluntarily band themselves together to maJke an intensive study of a subject, chosen by themselves—with its 'mutually helpful co-operation of instructed guidance and free choice, of collective organisation, and individual initiative, of public funds and personal contributions—may well prove to be a leading feature of the social life of the " Great State."
