For what they are doing will affect how men look at the society in which they live, and how they seek to use it or change it. Making the people of a village aware that their malaria can be avoided, for example, will cause them to make demands upon the larger community in which they live. At least they will demand drugs, or insect spray, or teachers; they will no longer be passive beings who simply accept the life they know. And if people who have been aroused cannot get the change they want, or a substitute for it which is acceptable to them, they will become discontented—if not hostile—towards whatever authority they regard as responsible for the failure.
For example, it is not enough that the people in a village should come to recognize that something can be done about their endemic malaria — t h a t it is not an evil which has to be endured. They also have to learn that malaria can be treated with drugs, or prevented by controlling mosquitoes, or that malaria can be dealt with by a combination of curative and preventive action. And all this must be followed up with action. Thus we have a whole series of educational activities all of which involve a learning proc e s s — a n expansion of consciousness.
But his specialized knowledge can be more effective — a n d can be spread among a larger number of v i l l a g e s — i f the people have already discussed and absorbed the reasons for anti-mosquito spraying, and developed a desire to learn how to do··it for themselves. It is at the level of this "specialist" adult education that the division into health, agriculture, child care, management, literacy, and other kinds of education, can make sense. But none of these branches can be self-contained; their work must be coordinated and linked.
