EDUCATION-One Year of Adult Education

EDUCATION-One Year of Adult Education

December 22-29, 1979 EDUCATION One Year of Adult Education A R Kamat THE National Adult Education Programme (NAEP) was formally launched on October 2 last year after several months of preparation. It will be recalled that the NAEP was planned with an objective of making 10 crore illiterate adults in the age-group 15 to 45 literate in six years. Starting with a modest target of 15 lakhs in the first year, which is called the 'preparatory year', it is supposed to cover 650 lakhs of adult illiterates in the five years of the present plan 1978-83. And this is to be topped by extending it to another ISO lakhs in the sixth year, that is, the year (1984-1985) of the next plan. Here it is proposed to review the performance of the first year of the NAEP on the basis of the three publications 1 and several newspaper write- ups which have appeared from time to time. Actually the Gujarat appraisal reviews the pre-first-year effort in adult education, of the seven months from January 1978 till August 1978. It was meant to be a feedback to the NAEP effort in its first year.
