Included in exclusion : learning, civil society and widening participation.

Martin, S. and Williamson, B. (2002) 'Included in exclusion : learning, civil society and widening participation.', Journal of access and credit studies., 4 (1). pp. 51-62.


This paper argues that current policy initiatives to widen participation in education in Britain are counterproductive, widen the gulf between traditional and nontraditional education, and promote social exclusion. A fundamental rethinking of the educational system is required, shifting from structures that replicate a centralized system toward a focus on the needs of individuals and groups within the lifeworlds of civil society.
