A new mandate for this blog?

In 2014 this blog was created as a collaboratively authored effort by educators-researchers  in the adult education field in British Columbia with the aim ‘to gather and share information about the social, economic and educational consequences of ABE tuition policy and other changes to adult education policy in BC.’ Now that the tuition fees are no more, do we want to set new goals for this blog? What might these be? Recent posts offer some inspiration: Rich research that pushes literacy and basic education research and practice along, timely reports from the field, new policy insights and ideas, a place to share information. Perhaps too a place to share experiences of decolonizing adult literacy and basic education? What else?

  1. I like that idea, Suzanne. The first year, we were responding to the crisis brought on by tuition fees and an unwieldy grant-funding mechanism. Then we started to see the blog was becoming an archive of news, discussion, reports and analysis – all very relevant to the policy development period we are in now. I hope the blog will continue to be a both timely and archival.
