Popular Education As Adult Education within Postmodernism.
Stanage, Sherman M.
Thresholds in Education, v22 n3-4 p38-44 Aug-Nov 1995
Adult education must become popular education in both communal and personal terms to survive funding agencies' special power-interest hegemonies, traditional higher education models, and rampant economic materialism. This article discusses six modernist constructions of adult education, highlighting professionalization and specialization, and presents a postmodern definition of adult education within a real-world context.
