Summary of the Main Findings of the study "Demand for Part-Time Learning in Ontario".
Waniewicz, Ignacy
A probability sample survey of 1,541 residents of Ontario, Canada investigated: (1) the scope of involvement of adults in deliberate part-time learning activities, and (2) the possible role that educational communications media could play in extending educational opportunities to adults. Involvement in education varied according to age, educational attainment, income, occupation, place of residence, and native language, but overall results showed that 30 percent of adults were engaged in deliberate educational activities, and an additional 18 percent were interested in learning activities but were not presently involved. Obstacles that presented participation in education were investigated with the hope that in the future educational media could increase access. The report briefly discussed the institutions, subject areas, methods, and motivations that are employed in adult education. (EMH)
