What Counts? Mathematics Education for Adults.
Nesbit, Tom
Adult Basic Education, v6 n2 p69-83 Sum 1996
Surveys of the math attitudes of adult basic education teachers and learners, interviews with 8 teachers and 15 learners, and 85 hours of ethnographic observations led to these findings: teaching decisions are minimally influenced by learners; teacher-centered approaches prevail; math instruction is similar to inculcation; teachers and textbooks are ultimate authorities; and the notion of one solution and one method of reaching it is prevalent.
