Who Takes the Second Chance? Implementing Educational Equality in Adult Basic Education in a Swedish Context.
Fransson, Anders; Larsson, Staffan
This paper presents an overview of adult basic education in Sweden, focusing on what types of adults take advantage of basic educational opportunities and when they do so. It includes two case studies, one of auxiliary nurses and one of factory workers, that describe what motivates these employees to take literacy education or further education courses and what courses they are likely to take. The paper concludes that, overall, adults are more likely to take advantage of educational opportunities when they are necessary to their lives at the moment and when they are made convenient, especially when they are conducted in the workplace during working hours. The document contains 43 references. (KC)
