1.1     Background of the Study

The ability to understand the concept and particularly adult education may depend on a number of factors such as educational level, political maturity and socio-economic status of the people. And as adult education constitutes the integral part of the entire educational system and remains a tool for political, social economic and educational development to mention few. From the above integral factors listed above, the concept “Adult education” needs to be properly understood by the all people.

The term “adult education” is perhaps one of the lips of the people if you ask an ordinary man on the street what is adult education? He is likely to rug his shoulders and look at you with an astonishment as if you have no right to “Lawyer me” yet as an adult he remains a permanent target of adult education for an adult he is both a recipient and a promoter of adult education. If you ask the man on the street he is likely to see adult education for the never to do well, who are doing in the evening what they should have normally have done early in the day if you ask primary pupil what is adult education he is likely to look at you with amazement for he is yet battling with his ABC; 123; dictation, writing and the memorization of the national pledge”.
