Life Long Education : Policy, Programs and Approaches

Auther : A.Al-Khateeb

This paper tackles the concept is rooted in the fact that the most essential function of education is to liberate the individual and help him actualize his own potentials, and that life-long educational opportunities should be made available for all. Thus the need for long-life education can be justified by various urgent factors-whether intellectual, economic, sociological and psychological, political, or technological-which press on the contemporary individual toward incessant educational pursuit throughout his life span. The long life education movement is a natural response to the ever-changing needs of modern society and hence it should cater for three fundamental requirements, namely providing equal opportunities, motivation and educability. Life education is not a substitute for school . Rather, it involves the school role and complements it since it is wide open for all individuals of different ages and occupation. In broad terms this movement is characterized by many features as totality, integration, flexibility, democratization and self-actualization. The curricula of life long education can be devised in the light of the various needs and levels of learners. The scope of content, too, ought to be so broad and varied as to include such areas of literacy, professional, specialized, political training, as well as social adaptation, civic training, leisure appreciation, etc. Accordingly, the adopted learning approach should be multi-media in nature, type and scope. The paper also envisages a series of recommendation with regard to the application of life long education principles. It suggests drastic alteration of the existing educational models and strategies accompanied with preliminary change of the attitudes and outlook of both educators and laymen toward the role of school  in apprehending and implementing the objectives of life long education.
