LEARNING CIRCLE - What role can adult education play in shaping Quebec politics?
For my masters’ thesis research, I was interested in how women who are serviced by women’s centers in Montreal learn about politics and take action with their learning. The centers studied in my thesis serviced mostly women who belonged to marginalized groups, newcomer, racialized, poor and/or illiterate women. The principles of popular education were crucial to the work of these centers, as this approach values the learner’s expertise and empowers them in the process. In this class discussion, we will explore some findings from my research, especially as they relate to my current role as an education advisor in a Quebec worker’s federation that uses popular education principles in the political education of its members.
