The Complexity of Disaffection: Mature Returners and the Narrative Tensions of Inclusion, Hierarchy and Access.
Warmington, Paul
Journal of Access and Credit Studies, v4 n1 p5-19 Aut 2002
Analysis of narratives constructed in 61 group and individual interviews with mature, working-class adults returning to education showed that, although access programs targeted disaffected learners, many still felt alienated or marginalized or received minimal support and encouragement. They believed that education had to be perceived as reasonably accessible but also hierarchical to increase the value of participation. (Contains 23 references.) (SK)
