Adult education: How you can make it work for you
Today Money
Many adults are banking on going back to school as a way to get a leg up in the job market. Nearly 4 million people age 35 and older are enrolled in a degree-granting institution, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. More than two-thirds are women. Despite a slack job market, many may hope an advanced degree or new credential will make them more "marketable" — helping them find work in a new field, land a higher-paid position, or simply hold onto the job they have in an increasingly competitive environment. But is going back to school worth it? It can be.

TrainingIndustry.com
As the need for an educated global workforce continues to grow, so does the demand to train those employees and help them become life-long learners. And, although many believe that MOOCS — massive open online courses — may provide the answer, it is still in the conceptual phase when looking at it from a business perspective.

How boosting adult educational skills can grow the middle class
Center for American Progress
The basic skill level of American adults is incredibly important for our ability to grow and maintain a strong middle class. In an economy that increasingly relies on technology we must invest in policies that promote and strengthen the skills of our citizens so that they can continue to drive American economic growth. A new Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development report will provide a strong and clear call to United States policymakers to protect America's global standing through investments in education because basic skill levels are linked with employability in the global economy. The OECD conducted the Program for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies, a major household survey across 23 countries that examined adult skill levels in three areas: literacy, numeracy and problems solving.

Why millennials are struggling, grannies are thriving, and what to do about it
PBS
Millennials are the most educated generation ever, but it's taking a lot longer for them to launch their careers. But don't blame older workers still on the job; they're not crowding their kids and grandchildren out of the good jobs. That's the conclusion of a new report from the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce and The Generations Initiative: "Failure to Launch: Structural Shift and the New Lost Generation."

Canada needs an online education strategy
The Globe and Mail (commentary)
Jenni Hayman, a contributor for The Globe and Mail, writes: "I've been asked several times in the past few months, why I started the Wide World Ed initiative. I started it because I have deeply held personal values about global education, and a strong passion for empowered, collaborative research. I have observed, with great interest, the formation and evolution of edX, Coursera and Udacity in the U.S., as well as Australia's Open2Study, and the U.K.'s FutureLearn. I have come to believe that Canada needs its own space."
