Progress Achieved towards
Illiteracy Eradication (1997-2007)
O- Proposed Regulations For Adult Education (2003): Because Adults Education Regulations were issued long ago in 1392 H. – 1972 A.D, and due to recent developments occurred in this field, the Adults Education Directorate has made a study of a project proposal for adults education regulations, which stands for an extension to the Adults Education System and Illiteracy Eradication issued in 1392H., in which local and global changes in the previous years, were taken into account, so that it could be able to fill the needs of whole country development in the future. The study has ended up with a full visionary perspective about the nature, objectives, terms, sample subjects, academic plan, curricula, courses, application and evaluation of that project, which later was presented to the Higher Committee of Illiteracy Eradication and Adult Education (HCIEAE). Another committee, too, was formed by members from MOHE , MOE, MSA, and TVTC.
Eventually, in view of rapid changes in the world, the study has concluded with a recommended emphasis on developing illiteracy-free society programs (IFP) that would become not only in balance with those changes, but confrontational too.
