A Critical Review of the U.S. Literature on Race and Adult Education--Implications for Widening Access.
Johnson-Bailey, Juanita; Cervero, Ronald M.
Journal of Adult and Continuing Education, v7 n1 p33-44 Spr 2001
Review of adult education literature reveals the absence of the concept of whiteness and three types of responses: color- blind perspectives, multicultural education, and social justice issues. To widen access involves "barrier thinking": recognition of the implicit messages of discrimination the academy delivers to racial minorities. (Contains 28 references.) (SK)
