This paper investigates the provision of political education for adults.
The author seeks to answer the questions of what skills, knowledge,
resources and attitudes are required to make adults effective in the
wider political arena - and how to deliver these.
The main body of evidence is provided by a survey of the literature;
supported by the author's reflections upon his own experience as an
active citizen.
The paper opens with a consideration of a number of relevant definitions.
In order to place the study in context, the author presents information
on the history of political education and the perceived attitudes of
contemporary society towards politics.
Subsequent sections consider the special features of adult learning and
the most suitable learning methods for adult use. The paper closes with the author's summary of his findings and his
proposed personal agenda for providing a range of political education
through a variety of channels to the community.
