"In Ignorance to View a Small Portion and Think That All": The False Promise of Job Literacy.
Kazemek, Francis E.
Journal of Education, v173 n1 p51-64 1991
A perspective that sees adult literacy only in job-related terms is too limiting for a participatory democracy. In place of the prevailing metaphor "adult literacy as consumerism," a view of adult literacy education as an imaginative, social, and communal process of story telling promotes individual and social development.
