THE CASE FOR PRIOR LEARNING ASSESSMENT AND RECOGNITION FOR LABOUR EDUCATION IN CANADA
AbstractThis article argues the case for recognising the value of labour learning within the formal education system. It is based on an introduction to the report by Gereluk (2001) and discusses the impact of prior learning and recognition (PLAR) on Canadian labour education as well as outlining why labour education deserves recognition. The article reviews aspects of labour education detailed in the report including the content and purposes of union courses and who participates in, and who delivers, union courses.
