Oxford University Press

In assessing the adult tradition, one is required to go beyond educational success. One should also look for wider social aims and aspirations. This chapter proposes to do this by breaking down the tradition into its component parts and considering in turn the educational achievements. The spirit of learning for learning's sake which Oxford and Cambridge have always kept alive must be planted in the new centres if the universities are to extend their influence as well as their teaching. The Oxford tradition was premised on the belief that the future belonged to the workers.

Keywords:   adult tradition, educational success, social aims, workers' education, educational achievements
