Chapter 11: Why are the participation rates in lifelong learning so low in Hungary?
Restricted access

According to the rank order of nations in various comparative datasets (Adult Education Survey, Labour Force Survey ad hoc module on LLL – lifelong learning), Hungary is among the last in regard to participation rates in formal adult learning. Country typologies developed in the framework of the ‘Towards a Lifelong Learning Society in Europe: The Contribution of the Education System’ (LLL2010) project (Hefler et al. 2011) empirically confirm Hungary’s poor placement in the league tables. In accordance to the main focal points of the project, five aspects expected to influence the practice of formal adult learning activities at the level of the individual will be investigated in this chapter.
