Adult Education & Social Change. Models for Adult and Lifelong Learning.
Ntiri, Daphne W., Ed.
The four papers in this collection form part of the nucleus of research by a task force of advanced social science doctoral students who were foreign nationals enrolled in Midwestern universities. The first three papers, each a chapter situated within an interdisciplinary context, draw from politics, sociology, and history to define constructs on the process of social change. The last paper applies economic theory to the wage earnings of adults in an urban metropolitan setting. An introduction by Daphne W. Ntiri, providing an overview of the research papers, precedes the chapters. The following four papers are included: "In from the Margins: Challenges, Possibilities and Limitations of Participatory Research" (Derek C. Mulenga); "Adult Education and Social Change: Toward a Typology of USA. Adult Education" (Raymond Familusi); "Africa's Educational Dilemma: Roadblocks to Universal Literacy for Social Integration and Change" (Daphne W. Ntiri); and "Quality of Education and Its Impact on Earning of Adults in Urban Industry-Related Occupations" (Fan Zhang). Each paper includes a list of references. (KC)
