Communication Barriers between Educated and Uneducated Persons.
Lewis, Harry
Effective communication between middle class, or educated (12th grade and up) and the lower class, or uneducated (8th grade or less) is discussed from the standpoint of problems suggested by potential discontinuity brought about by signs (or language) and common experience. Research in the field is cited. It is suggested that if the people of the subculture are to be educated, administered, and persuaded into self-sufficiency and conformity by a benevolent government of, by, and for the middle class, then the middle class must somehow improve communication with the target population.
