Taking Care of Business: The Opportunities and Dilemmas for Adult Education in a Changing Economy
Scully-Russ, Ellen
New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education, n149 p73-82 Spr 2016
The new emphasis on vocational skills provides adult education a new raison d'être and presents new developmental dilemmas to the field of adult education. This chapter examines these tensions in light of significant social change that places underqualified adults at great risk to a vicious cycle of marginalization and how adult education will be shaped by the way adult educators respond to these new demands and dilemmas.
