Engaging Non-participants in Formal Education: Considering a Contribution from Trade Union Education.
Ball, Malcolm
Studies in Continuing Education, v24 n2 p119-31 Nov 2002
A study of 66 British participants at the beginning of and 2 years into labor education revealed that 80% had left school at age 16 and had negative schooling experiences. However, continual engagement in union activities and education, opportunities to see connections between work and learning activities, and the mutual reinforcement of these activities contributed to new perspectives on learning for these formerly disaffected adults.
