Overselling Literacy.
Smith, Frank
Phi Delta Kappan, v70 n5 p352-59 Jan 1989
When literacy is promoted as the solution to all economic, social, and educational ills, illiteracy becomes the "disease" causing these problems. Literacy cannot guarantee employment or personal success, but is powerful enough to transform the world. Children need to see powerful uses of literacy in the school environment. Includes 18 references. (MLH)
