Socioeconomic Contributions of Adult Learning to Community: A Social Capital Perspective.
Balatti, Jo; Falk, Ian
Adult Education Quarterly, v52 n4 p281-98 Aug 2002
An Australian study analyzed contributions of adult learning to eight categories of well being. The analysis illustrates that the process of drawing upon social capital is intrinsic to learning and directly involved in realizing socioeconomic outcomes. Socioeconomic benefits of learning partly derive from learners' identity formation and reformation. (Contains 35 references.) (SK)
