The Gendered Construction of the Adult Education and Family Literacy Act.
Sparks, Barbara
New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education, n91 p47-54 Fall 2001
A feminist analysis of the Adult Education and Family Literacy Act shows that its emphasis on women's role as mothers impedes their literacy development. Adult education policies should be reexamined because of the competing interests of women's development for parenting (family literacy) and for work (welfare reform). (Contains 20 references.) (SK)
