This paper looks at adult and community education (hereafter ACE), and in particular, the dimensions of, and reasons for, its marginal status as an education sector; its role, principally measured in its educational achievements, as a field in Aotearoa; and possible future directions for it in a political environment which is predominantly hostile to much of its central ethos and tenets.
