Literacy Training and the Brazilian Political Economy. An Essay on Sources.
Fletcher, Philip R.
An annotated bibliography is presented in essay form of sources concerning Brazil's literacy program for adults, MOBRAL (Movimento Brasileiro de Alfabetizacao), and its implications for the country's economy. General sources on literacy training are followed by works concerning Brazil's political system. Descriptions of the MOBRAL program, mostly government publications and newspaper articles, are listed. Sources with a sociological approach to education in Latin America are followed by publications concerning the effects of literacy education on the economy. Sources on the political involvements of MOBRAL and its predecessor, Movimento Educacao de Base, are presented. The concluding sections present books and articles by Paulo Freire and published commentary on his work. (KM)
