    For March’s book club book I read “Working the Planning Table” by Ronald M Cervero and Arthur L WIlson The book is organized around three stories to illustrate the complexities of planning programs for adults The main metaphor throughout the work is the planning table which is any area where people are coming together with ideas and planning They give the example of the talk in the hallway about something is a kind of planning table as well as the formal meetings held in boardrooms The goal is to see how people are involved in the planning table no matter where it is One main discussion throughout he book is of power dynamics While planning may seem objective there is always an agenda It is political because the people at the planning table’s work are all centered around “power interests ethical commitment and negation” The book explores these notions in depth using the three examples This related to my work at WIlder in the sense that there are two program coordinator CTEPs and we work as a team with our supervisor when it comes to large decisions so the sections related to planning what constitutes planning and how those things can be changed made sense We can be talking about things in the hallway and that is a ‘panning table’ in itself More work is done every day than we think about I also think that the notions it brings up about how planning for a classroom is politically motivated is something that we try to take into account When revamping older curriculum we always have to remind ourselves that our way of doing something or the way we think our classrooms should be run is situated in our own politics and that it cannot be separated I would not recommend this book for CTEPers mostly because it’s a book designed for anyone doing a lot of planning in higher education or upper management staff education planning I do feel that some of the points that I’ve outlined above are take aways for everyone but the way they are embedded I feel that the information could be accessible in another work I think there are many useful tidbits in the book but there are other books and better ways to talk about adult education and planning than this; at least for what we do
