ABSTRACT
This article describes a research study about the experiences of adult educators in which the stories of three of the participants were central in exploring the issue of social care in adult education. It proposes that the adult educators with a social care orientation in this study acknowledge the importance of, and work to provide for, human needs (e.g., food, shelter, and belonging), care (working from an ethical affective orientation as opposed to a rational justice orientation), and social justice (a power analysis focusing on marginalization and oppression in a capitalist society).
