Myths and Realities of Literacy/Illiteracy.
Hunter, Carman St. John
Convergence: An International Journal of Adult Education, v20 n1 p1-18 1987
Examines three myths concerning illiteracy: (1) the Third World remains poor because of high illiteracy rates; (2) nations can be rated on a scale that compares relative literacy rates, and (3) what is needed is a reliable definition. Concludes the real issue is not literacy, but equity and justice. (CH)
