Discourse in Adult Education: The Language Education of Adult Immigrants in Sweden.
Hill, Hannah
International Journal of Lifelong Education, v9 n4 p289-315 Oct-Dec 1990
A shortcoming of adult education theories is lack of attention to social, historical, and institutional contexts. A case study of language education programs for adult immigrants in Sweden illustrates how assumptions about participant-centered, needs-based education justified and legitimated the use of these programs as a tool for employment opportunities.
