Lynn Tett has updated and expanded her discussion about community education development. It illustrates the conceptual as well as political debates about the role, purpose, and practice of community education. This second edition moves behind the policy rhetoric to recognize and explore some of the tensions in current policy trends, particularly the danger of seeing social marginalisation as an individual problem rather than as a result of structured inequalities. A number of community education projects are examined giving a real sense of the approach being advocated and making the case for a model of lifelong learning focusing on democratic renewal. The task of community educators is not an easy one. They must recognize competing interests but still enable voices to be heard and, at the same time, seek ways of building mutual understandings and cooperation. The challenge for community education is considerable. This book provides a real sense of the possibilities. The book is an established text used in teacher training courses throughout the UK.
