What is Adult Education?

Adult Education is educational programs or courses for adults who are out of school or college. Adult education is concerned not with preparing people for life, but rather with helping people to live more successfully.
Thus if there is to be an overarching function of the adult education enterprise, it is to assist adults to increase competence, or negotiate transitions, in their social roles (worker, parent, retiree etc.), to help them gain greater fulfilment in their personal lives, and to assist them in solving personal and community problems. (Darkenwald and Merriam 1982: 9).
Adult education is a public education program for all adults. Adult schools offer free to low-cost classes for adults 18 and older. Students can get a high school diploma, general education diploma (GED), learn about jobs, learn to speak English, and learn how to become a U.S. citizen. Adult schools are located in many cities and towns.
Adult is means a person who is fully grown or developed and  who's 18 years or older, unless the issue is drinking legally, in which case an adult is someone 21 years or older. Then Education is the process of receiving or giving systematic instruction, especially at a school or university. Education requires instruction of some sort from an individual or composed literature.
