WORKERS' EDUCATION IN THE U.S. by Theodore ed. Brameld


Email this review


The history and definition of ""workers' education"" as well as its place in the general field of education and industry. Misunderstood, overlooked even in the field of labor where it belongs, workers' education demands better understanding and this book should show the way. The authors of the various chapters are authorities in their fields. All recognize that with labor a powerful and important partner in our national set-up, the importance of supplying adequate opportunity for further education, supplementary to unfinished schooling, or offering the chance for advancement, should be tied in with educational systems. Teachers, curriculum, direction should make for a more dynamic democracy, build better material for labor leadership, produce better citizens. An eyeopener as to the uphill struggle of labor to educate its own, not only in history and philosophy of the movement, but in the ordinary tools of daily living. Public libraries -- colleges primarily.
