Should I Stay or Should I Go? Investigating Cambodian Women's Participation and Investment in Adult ESL Programs.
Skilton-Sylvester, Ellen
Adult Education Quarterly, v53 n1 p9-26 Nov 2002
An ethnographic study of four Cambodian women learning English as a second language showed how their participation was connected to their identities as spouses, mothers, sisters, daughters, and workers. The research extends Norton Peirce's theory by highlighting the role that cultural identity plays in investment in learning. (Contains 31 references.) (SK)
