Why is it important?

By placing this study in the context of youth and adult learning, the study complements research that has addressed this topic in different international contexts, contributing broadly to knowledge regarding teacher education for rural areas and, more generally, to the implications of lifelong learning. “Education for all throughout life” has become a recognized right. Democracies must universalize this right by developing public policies, implementing them throughout the entire population and monitoring progress to verify that everyone – including the poorest peasant in the remotest countryside – has the tools to learn effectively.


In addition, this research suggests that future studies focus on the differences and similarities of other international experiences regarding education and lifelong learning for Education and lifelong learning young people and peasant adults. This will help to expand the existing research on this theme, rather than simply exhausting the discussion proposed in this manuscript.
