Relying on personal insights, Dr. Ben wood Johnson offers educators, students, and school administrators alike a glimpse into the reality of adult learning. Adult learners face panoply of situations, which often have detrimental effects on their psyche. The American educational system was not designed for adults. Older learners often face insurmountable obstacles in their quest for an education. For the most part, adult learners are left to fend for themselves. Many of them have no other alternatives but to abandon their educational goals.

Using real world examples, Dr. Johnson present a thorough, but concise, analysis of the nature of the problems in adult education. He draws from the literature to make the case that adult learning is more complicated that most people realize. He also makes the case for a better approach to the reality of adult learning. Dr. Johnson draws from his own experience in higher education and his research in the domain of teaching and educational administration to put forth a comprehensive examination of the problems facing adults of all ages.

Adult Education in America—a policy assessment of adult learning—offers the reader a genuine lens to explore the issues. The text focuses on problems related to logistics, pedagogy, employment, relationships among students, school staff (e.g., administrators and faculty), and other personal situation. The book explores common issues in higher education, which many people, including school administrators, are aware of, but seldom tackle with concrete solutions.
