Lifelong Learning: Exploring the Issues in an Area of Social Deprivation in Scotland.
Cloonan, Martin; Crossan, Beth
Scottish Educational Review, v34 n1 p76-85 May 2002
Individual and focus-group interviews explored barriers and motivations to lifelong learning among residents of a disadvantaged area of Glasgow (Scotland). Some participants were motivated to pursue adult education to improve employment opportunities, but motivations related to social and community networks were also important. The current policy emphasis on human capital development overlooks such social capital concerns. (Contains 38 references.) (TD)
