Open Access Graduate Research Paper

Abstract

Education at any age is considered to be a means for enhancing the quality of one's life. The researcher contends that improving the quality of life is a continuous and eternal theme, filtering through the entire life span of any hum an being. Thomas Jefferson was quoted in Ronald Gross' book The New Old as saying "The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only legitimate object of good government'' (p. 259). If we can assume that education is a means for improving the quality of life, then we can sense the need for increased knowledge and information in the field of Educational Gerontology.
