DESCRIPTION

In the context of South Africa's deepening inequalities, widespread poverty, and increasing unemployment rates, the need for a new approach to adult education is becoming urgent. Learning for Living issues a call to action to meet that need.

Drawing on the lived experiences of people throughout the country, the book challenges policymakers, researchers, educators, and civil society organizations to think critically about the relationship between continuing education and the world of work, and about how to transform the post-school system to better serve the needs and interests of both rural and urban communities.
