The Politics of an Emancipatory Literacy in Cape Verde.
Macedo, Donaldo P.
Journal of Education, v165 n1 p99-112 Win 1983
Examines the literacy program in Cape Verde against theories of cultural production and reproduction. Argues that the use of Portuguese rather than the Capeverdean dialect reproduces a colonial, elitist mentality, and that functional literacy in Portuguese fails to provide Capeverdeans with opportunities for critical reflection and social interaction and reconstruction.
