Universal Individualism and Constructions of the Adult Student in Scottish Adult Education Policy
Galloway, Vernon
Journal of Adult and Continuing Education, v11 n2 p200-212 Nov 2005
This article argues that adult education policy in Scotland has been constructed, in particular ways which resonate with significant cultural themes, lending them a currency which appeals to a deep sense of identity. Using the theme of universal individualism, the paper considers how ideas of community and education have been used to maintain the authority of powerful groups in the construction of curricula and pedagogy.
