Criteria for Assessing Critical Adult Education Research.
Little, David J.
Adult Education Quarterly, v42 n4 p237-49 Sum 1992
Traces the origins of critical adult education research in positivism, hermeneutics, and historical relativism. Poses questions for assessing such research: (1) does the problem statement refer to social structure inequities and asymmetrical power relationships? (2) does the theory include reflection upon existing inequities and the process of their perpetuation? and (3) is the methodology practical, critical, and scientifically sound? (SK)
