Quebec's Adult Educational Settings: Potential Turning Points for Emerging Adults? Identifying Barriers to Evidence-Based Interventions
Marcotte, Julie
Canadian Journal of Educational Administration and Policy, n77 p1-18 Jul 2008
Using the new "emerging adulthood" developmental period (Arnett, 2000) as a theoretical framework, this article emphasizes the challenges faced by emerging adults (17- to 24-year-olds) enrolled in adult education. First, emerging adulthood as a developmental period and the additional difficulties experienced by youths with emotional, behavioral and school disabilities during this period are briefly discussed. Then, a description of adult education within the Quebec's school system and its potential role as a turning point is presented. Finally, barriers to improvement are identified and the need for better knowledge about this clientele to establish evidence-based interventions is asserted. (Contains 2 footnotes.)
