Adult Education Have and Have nots in COVID times

By WENDY TERRY - February 16 2021

ESL

Haves
Newcomer students doing LINC classes as these are funded by the federal government who is not cancelling classes if the number of students attending class have dropped due to moving to online instruction due to COVID.

Have nots
Newcomer students doing ESL classes as these are funded by the provincial government who has just given notice to 90 classes at the Toronto District School Board that they will be closed if the number of students attending class does not increase.

Job Search

Haves
Most Employment Ontario Centres have been closed for in person service for months now but if you have a computer and access to the Internet you can get help through ZOOM workshops and emails.

Have nots
If you do not have access to the Internet (library access has been closed or time limited on a computer for months now) you are a have not.

Continuing Ed Courses

Haves
If you have access to the Internet and a camera attached to you computer, you could do an on line class and interact face to face with other students and the teacher. You are a have.

Have nots
If you do not have access to the Internet when your course is being held and no camera attached to your computer so you could interact with other students and the teacher, you are a have not.

Let Learning Curves know about other Haves and Have nots in Adult Education- the daily press never seems to write stories about the plight of adult learners.
