Valentine, Thomas; Darkenwald, Gordon G.
Adult Education Quarterly, v41 n1 p29-42 Fall 1990
Data from an earlier study, a survey of 215 adults that identified six factors deterring participation in adult education, were reanalyzed. The resulting typology describes 5 types of nonparticipants: people deterred by personal problems, lack of confidence, educational costs, lack of interest in formal education, and lack of interest in available courses.
