The Handbook of Race and Adult Education: A Resource for Dialogue on Racism

#ad
Jossey-Bass #ad - It is a long overdue medium through which those in higher education, as well as the general adult education field, can engage in a discussion that leads to critical understanding and moves us into meaningful change. The book offers an exploration into how these factors need to be centered in a discourse and perspective that can provide those in the margins as well as in the center with ways to think about creating changes in their classrooms, communities, and homes.

The handbook of race and adult education while much attention has been given to inclusion, and multiculturalism within adult education, diversity, The Handbook of Race and Adult Education is the first comprehensive work to engage in a dialogue specifically about race and racism and the effect these factors have on the marginalization or oppression of groups and individuals.

This volume is a timely addition to the intense racial debate occurring in this country today. This landmark book provides the field of adult and continuing education with a model for the discussion of race and racism from social, educational, political, and psychological perspectives, and seeks to articulate a conceptual challenge to the ethnocentric focus of the discussion in the field.

The Handbook of Race and Adult Education: A Resource for Dialogue on Racism #ad - . It offers adult education scholars, including examinations of how these factors have been seen through multiple theoretical frameworks; how they have affected many lived experiences at work, as well as those engaged in research and teaching about race, home, an opportunity to engage in a discourse about race and racism, and within educational settings; and how they have served to privilege some and not others.
