These days however many adults suffer from illiteracy and a lack of knowledge due to the m inimal amount of emphasis that was placed on education in the past. This has mad e it necessary for many individuals not only on the African continent but across the world to require some form of adult education so that they can improve thei r level of education. The most important factor that affects the need for adult education is that the adults in society are the people who are responsible for educating the next gene ration. It may be all good and well to say that this falls to the education and schooling system in a country but this is not always the case. Although educatio n is now considered a basic human right, there are many cases where this is just not possible. A parent who has received adult education is the best educator fo r his or her children and can plant the necessary seeds within their children to make them hunger for knowledge and development. Giving the benefit of an adult education to just one person in a rural community has been shown to have enormous effect on the population group of that communit y. Not only can this person who has received adult education be turned to for as sistance in many matters but they will have the ability to pass on the skills th ey have learnt to other people in the community. This allows adult education to have a ripple effect where every person can pass on some of the knowledge and sk ills gained through the adult education courses.
