Literacy and Running Your Life: A Nicaraguan Example.
Lankshear, Colin
Language and Education: An International Journal, v5 n2 p95-111 1991
If literacy is to increase the autonomy and social standing of previously illiterate persons rather than to domesticate and further subordinate them, reading and writing must be imbued with genuine empowering potential. A case study from rural Nicaragua, set against an account of adult literacy for revolutionary change, is presented. (37 references) (Author/LB)
