Basil Yeaxlee published the first book on Lifelong Education

This year, Basil Yeaxlee (1883-1967) published Lifelong education: A sketch of the range and significance of the adult education movement, considered the first full statement of lifelong education. This pioneering book, published in London, provided the first comprehensive discussion on experiential learning, informal education and community life , opening the path for many others to come during the reminder of the 20th century.
