Provincial ABE policy discussions are underway, and we are pleased about that. Now, more than ever, we need to understand how BC Liberal government policy, for more than a decade, worked to diminish and destabilize adult basic education in the province. During our upcoming policy discussions we need to be frank about those failures and steer clear of bad policy that raises barriers and reduces access for ABE students. From the blog’s archives (Dec 2014), I am reposting Re-Framing the Conversation: Respecting Adult Basic Education in BC. The report is a source of accessible information on adult education policies in BC and in Canada, neoliberal effects on access to education, policy rules, portraits of adult basic education students and statistics on public funding for adult education.
