Demystifying Literacy: Reading, Writing, and the Struggle for Liberation.
James, Michael D.
Convergence: An International Journal of Adult Education, v23 n1 p14-26 1990
Literacy by itself cannot change oppressive conditions. It can only be an instrument in the struggle against social, economic, and political oppression. Examples of literacy as a political act may be found in the work of Paulo Freire and in projects that follow the tradition of the Highlander Folk School. (SK)
