Participation in Adult and Community Education: A Discourse of Diminishing Returns.
Crowther, Jim
International Journal of Lifelong Education, v19 n6 p479-92 Nov-Dec 2000
Dominant discourse about participation in adult education assumes that (1) participation is good; (2) participation equates with formal learning; (3) learners are individuals, abstracted from their social context; and (4) there are barriers to participation, not resistance. These assumptions obscure issues about informal learning, collective experience, and resistance to power. (Contains 49 references.) (SK)
