Agenda for new directions for the implementation of adult education programmes in a developing milieu
Setting new directions for recognition and the implementation of adult education programmes in the 21st century has become imperative. This is particularly so in a developing milieu such as Nigeria. A look at the national objectives of adult education contained in the National Policy on Education reveals a gap between the gamut of programmes of adult education and the focus of government interest. This can be traced to the vestiges and vintage of colonial lopsided policy on adult education. The implications of this colonial legacy for over-all development and the need for a new agenda is the focus of this paper.
