Security, Dignity, Caring Relationships, and Meaningful Work: Needs Motivating Participation in a Job-Training Program
Ayers, David F.; Miller-Dyce, Cherrel; Carlone, David
Community College Review, v35 n4 p257-276 2008
Researchers asked 17 participants in a job-training program to describe their personal struggles following an economic restructuring. Examined through a critical theoretical lens, findings indicate that the learners enrolled in the program to reclaim security, dignity, meaningful work, and caring relationships. Program planners at community colleges are therefore urged to employ democratic program planning models, ask learners about their educational needs as they see them, and listen compassionately to their responses.
