Claiming the Right to Learn (1994)

Adult Basic Education to the Year 2000

In a report published in 1985, the Toronto Board of Education put forward a model of cooperatively provided adult basic education involving the board and community groups.

This document, published in 1994, looks at what had been accomplished since 1985 and sets out a vision of accessible lifelong educational opportunities for adults in Toronto. The ideas outlined in this document were gathered from adult learners, instructors, staff, community literacy workers, and volunteers from across the city in a variety of board-sponsored settings.

Among the initiatives described are strategies for strengthening community outreach; reviewing intake, assessment and referral procedures; obtaining better support services for learners; better integrating students with disabilities; and improving the process of program evaluation.
