Functional illiteracy and adult basic education in the Netherlands

  • February 1990

In this monograph a picture will be given of the development of Adult Basic Education in the Netherlands. ABE is a relatively new provision in Dutch adult education. It is grounded in the experiences gained from four projects that developed aspects of education in the seventies and the early eighties for adults with little schooling. The ABE provision which is, so to speak, the crystallisation of these project experiences is intended as an instrument to improve the social participation of adults with little schooling.  One could say that this is the yardstick by which to measure its effectiveness.
