John Field (2006)

Lifelong learning and the new educational order

Trentham Books Ltd

Lifelong learning remains an explosive policy issue. In Britain and
elsewhere, governments are actively encouraging citizens to learn and
to apply their learning across their lifespan. Yet governments often
seem uncertain over the best means of achieving this desirable goal.
John Field's book explores the background to this sudden rise of
interest among policy-makers, maps existing patterns of participation,
evaluates the measures being developed to promote lifelong learning,
and assesses the prospects of achieving a viable learning society. This
fully revised and updated edition takes account of recent research and
policy. It will be essential reading for academics with a scholarly
interest in adult learning, as well as for teachers, managers and
others who want to understand one of the most critical and fast-moving
areas of modern educational policy.
