Maruatona, Tonic L.
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v45 n8 p736-45 May 2002
Argues that the Botswana National Literacy Program curriculum does not support linguistic, cultural, or socioeconomic diversity. Suggests that the program should be decentralized to accommodate cultural and ethnic diversity, that language policy should be reformed to permit the use of other languages, and that curriculum developers should network with learners in the production of materials.
