Chang, Dian-Fu; Lin, Sung-Po
Online Submission, US-China Education Review B 1 p138-144 2012
Since the government enacted the "Lifelong Learning Act" in 2002, Taiwanese working adults consider lifelong learning as a better route to increase their employability or competitiveness at work. This study analyzed the survey on adults administered by the Ministry of Education in Taiwan in 2008, and statistics analysis showed a close relationship of gender, SES (socio-economic status) and learning experiences of working adults. Working women in higher SES groups have shown more participating in lifelong learning. The key factor impacts on working women participating in lifelong learning depends on their family responsibilities. Men, on the other hand, had limited their participating, due to work-related reasons and less desire. (Contains 4 tables and 2 figures.)
