Adult Learners Celebrate Their Right to Learn and Freedom of Expression
Authors: Literacy Nova Scotia
This document is a collection of writings by adult learners in Nova Scotia. In celebration of International Adult Learners’ Week 2008, Literacy Nova Scotia collected submissions from adult learners across the province who wanted to celebrate their right to learn and their freedom of expression by writing about the learning journeys they had undertaken as adults.
More than 120 adult learners submitted essays, stories, poems and songs to the contest and each entry is a testament to the importance of our right to learn in this country. The three contest winners read from their submissions and presented copies to Nova Scotia Premier Rodney MacDonald at Province House in March 2008.
