Abstract: Continuing Education, professional development and lifelong learning are all terms used to describe an educational or training process that is a key component for successful organizations. The term Continuing Education often elicits several definitions, however one of the most comprehensive and applicable is Liveright and Haygood's 1969 version, "a process whereby persons who no longer attend school on a regular full-time basis … undertake sequential and organized activities with the conscious intention of bringing about changes in information, knowledge undertaking, skill appreciation and attitudes or for the purpose of identifying or solving personal or community problems" (Courtenay, 1990).

Abstract: El texto introduce en un tema capitular en el Chile de hoy, un tópico que ordena las vinculaciones entre lo público y lo privado en educación y que ha sido escasamente analizado en los últimos treinta a os; a nuestro entender, producto del éxito del neoliberalismo en la legitimación del orden privado y de sus principios sobre lo público. Este fenómeno ha sido nuevamente puesto en tela de juicio en la sociedad chilena, a causa del descontento social con un sistema de mercado que se ha mostrado implacable. El lucro ha quedado al descubierto como principio y fin de los objetivos de las políticas neoliberales, y con ello se desnuda su débil propuesta de desarrollo social y de operación del Estado, tarea a la que la educación, desde el neoliberalismo, tiene muy poco que aportar. The text introduces a central issue discussed in today’s Chile, a topic that organizes the bounds between public and private sectors in education and which has been rarely discussed in the last thirty years; due in our opinion to the success of neoliberal policy in legitimating private order and its principles over the public ones. This phenomenon has again been put into discussion in the Chilean society as a result of a social discontent towards a market system that has been relentless. The beginning and ending of the objectives of neoliberal policies has been profit and together with it, bares its weak proposal of society development and the operation of the State, a task that education has very little to contribute since neoliberal policy.

Abstract: This paper is a conceptual clarification of the nexus between music education and youth empowerment. It is also an exposition of how music education can be utilized for the empowerment of the Nigerian youths with a brief incursion into the meaning of education and its need for national development. The paper considers music education as a performance art which involves unique educational activities designed to enable the youths to achieve self-realization and life adjustment in the society. The conceptual clarifications touch upon some philosophical principles which guide music education in its application as a tool of empowerment of youths and how Nigerian government can borrow a leaf from some of the African countries who partner with non-governmental organizations (NGOs) such as the Music Crossroad International (MCI) organization to empower their youths and communities. Through the creation of such musical opportunities through partnerships by such countries, implications for Nigeria are drawn with recommendations and conclusions.
