This chapter discusses the aims and functions of workers' education, as set forth by the ILGWU's national education program. The purpose of the educational activities of the ILGWU is to provide the labor movement with intelligent, well informed, clear thinking men and women, as they can more effectively organize themselves in order to abolish the inequalities and injustices which they suffer. The courses provided by this program are geared toward the laborers' industries, organizations, and the labor movement as a whole. These courses also provide practical lessons concerning relations with fellow human beings, as well as inspiration via lessons in literature. The chapter then concludes with a sampling of the available courses in the ILGWU's Workers' University, which deal with a variety of topics.
