The second in the series titled Literacy and Learning. This book reinforces the pattern set in the first book in the series (Literacy, Adults & Diversity).
The twelve contributing authors discuss their explorations into language, literacy or numeracy, or they show what they learn about schooling, education and the adult world throught their use of language, literacy and discourse to disclose their findings.
The contributions expose and explore some of the significant issues underlying schooling and its intersection with the adult world outside of school: aspects of knowledge; gender; literacy across culture; and, assessing what is learned in school and the adult world.
The chapters reflect the variation and complexity of lifelong learning from schooling through the adult world.
