The Issue of Age in "The Learning Age": A Critical Review of Lifelong Learning in the United Kingdom under New Labour.
Cole, Mark
Education and Ageing, v15 n3 p437-53 2000
Examination of British government rhetoric about lifelong learning and access indicates they are actually promoting education as an economic policy. This is evident in the exclusion of older adults. Genuine lifelong learning should be a philosophy and practice that embraces a wide range of learning, enhancing quality of life. (Contains 32 references.) (SK)
