Supporting People Power: Personal reflections on 40 years in community learning and development

  • Charlie McConnell

Abstract


If you Google Wikipedia for community learning and development or community education, only two examples are referenced: Scotland and the State of Wisconsin in the USA. Apparently neither terms are used these days in the policies and practice of countries worldwide. This is surprising - not only because it is wrong but also because in fact community learning and development is a worldwide phenomenon. The term may not be being used in other countries, but this work has been part of an incredible educational revolution that has been taking place certainly since the later 1960s. A revolution that is called people power.
