Autonomy, Accountability in Adult Education and the Politics of Official Knowledge.
Zepke, Nick
New Zealand Journal of Adult Learning, v27 n2 p31-44 Oct 1999

Autonomy and accountability are used in the politics of official knowledge by competing interests. Critical theory provides guidelines for adult educators to deal with the politics. (SK)
