Hautecoeur, Jean-Paul
International Review of Education, v46 n5 p357-365 Sep 2000
Reports that the International Adult Literacy Survey (IALS) was administered to 20 member countries of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in 1998. IALS identified a very large proportion of adults with very low levels of literacy, most of whom did not see literacy as being crucial to their well being. (Contains 12 references.) (PGS)
