The Inclusion and Construction of the Worthy Citizen through Lifelong Learning: A Focus on the OECD
Walker, Judith
Journal of Education Policy, v24 n3 p335-351 May 2009
This paper argues that underlying the OECD's promotion of inclusion in, for and through lifelong learning is the notion of an "active citizen" who establishes their worth through learning and, ultimately, competence. Through the critical examination of recent OECD policy documents on adult and lifelong learning, the paper also calls for a re-examination of the purported goals of inclusion and participation, essential elements of "inclusive liberalism". (Contains 12 notes.)
