Abstract

From the earliest publications of the sixties about the deschooling society, the crisis of the educational system, the new concept of Lifelong Education and the need of Out-of-School educational activities for the new concept of community development, and, specially, from the articles and books published in the seventies by American authors, like Philip H. Coombs, Roy Prossser, Manzoor Ahmed, Cole Brembeck, Roland Paulston and others, the concept and the term of nonformal education started to be a word in use with strength in the world of education. Now, there are an international consensus about the need, importance and concept of nonformal education, but the process to arrive to this situation was long and, sometimes, difficult. In this article we try to analise chronologically and discover the events and discussions along this process.

Key words: Nonformal education, formal education, informal education, alternative educational conceptions, theories of education, lifelong education.
