    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 35.95

    'I have found Sally Raymond's worksheets ideally suited for use with pupils in need of focussed literacy development materials.

  • Adult Education & The Working Classby Kevin Ward; Richard Taylor

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 54.95

    This book has two purposes: first to argue that there is a greater need now than ever before for liberal adult education for the working class. Such provision would both help to ameliorate the gross inequalities of our society and provide some counter-balance to the increasingly utilitarian and vocational orientation of post-school education. Secondly,... more...

  • Adult Literacy and American Identityby Samantha NeCamp

    Southern Illinois University Press 2014; US$ 40.00

    The release of U.S. census data in 1910 sparked rhetoric declaring the nation had a literacy crisis and proclaiming illiterate citizens a threat to democratic life.

  • Beyond Rhetoricby Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2003; US$ 70.00

    Adults with busy lifestyles, whatever their education level or employment situation, may well ask why they should resume learning.

  • Co-financing Lifelong Learningby Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2004; US$ 39.00

    Lifelong learning is not yet a reality for all. Economic and financial factors continue to limit opportunities in ways that are neither efficient nor equitable. Part of the problem is that our societies still have the habit of viewing learning as something for the young, something that is state supported. more...

  • ICT and Learningby OECD Publishing

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2006; US$ 33.00

    Across both the industrialised and the developing worlds, educators have high hopes for information and communications technology (ICT). ICT has been seen as a potentially powerful tool for raising educational performance and increasing access to learning by the disadvantaged. Can it live up to these hopes? And does it have particular relevance to... more...

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2000; US$ 37.00

    Norway’s aid effort ranks second among DAC Members in terms of ODA to GNP ratio.
