Emic-Etic Conflicts as Explanation of Nonparticipation in Adult Education among the Maya of Western Guatemala.
Cutz, German; Chandler, Paul
Adult Education Quarterly, v51 n1 p64-75 Nov 2000
Causes for lack of participation of Mayan adults in literacy programs were investigated in ethnographic interviews. Emic deterrents at the individual, family, community, and national levels included personal needs, self-perception, rigid moral values, machismo, ethnic and cultural identity, community loyalty, and teaching formats. Successful literacy programs must consider the emic concepts--learners' voices, viewpoints, and values. (SK)
