Q.1-7. Read the following passage carefully and answer the following questions.

Educational planning should aim at meeting the educational needs of the entire population of all age groups. While the traditional structure of education as a three-layers hierarchy from the primary stage to the university represents the core, we should not overlook the periphery which is equally important under modern conditions. Workers need to rewind, or renew their enthusiasm, or strike out in a new direction, or improve their skills as much as any university professor. The retired and the aged have their needs as well. Educational planning, in other words, should take care of the needs of everyone.

Our structures of education have been built up on the assumption that there is a terminal point to education. This basic defect has become all the more harmful today. A UNESCO report entitled "Learning to Be" prepared by Edgar favre and others in 1973 asserts that the education of children must prepare the future adult for various forms of self-learning. A viable educational system of the future should consist of modules with different kinds of functions serving a diversity of constituents and performance, not the period of study, should be the basis for credentials. The writing is already on the wall. 

In view of the fact that the significance of a commitment of lifelong learning and lifetime education is being discussed only in recent years even in educationally advanced countries, the possibility of the idea becoming an integral part of education thinking seems to be a far cry. For, to move in that direction means much more than some simple rearrangement of the present organisation of educaiton. But a good beginning can be made by developing open University programmes for older learners of different categories and introducing extension services in the conventional colleges and schools. Also, these institutions should learn to cooperate with the numerous community organisations such as libraries, museums, municipal recreational programmes, health services, etc.
