Folklore and Culture as Literacy Resources for National Emancipation
Olajide, Stephen Billy
International Education Studies, v3 n2 p200-205 May 2010
Literacy counts a lot for development and progress. Efficient literacy induces and sustains good governance. Hence, all nations strive to attain balanced literacy. However any literacy programme that ignores the context of operation is not likely to be very successful. This paper canvasses that folklore and culture are essential ingredients for revitalizing literacy for national emancipation.
