"I Don't Crave To Read": School Reading and Adulthood.
Belzer, Alisa
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v46 n2 p104-13 Oct 2002
Describes five African American women learners who were participating in a community-based General Education Development program. Argues that a lack of engagement is in part due to the "scripts" of school reading, which they have carried with them into adulthood and which alienate them from the act of reading. (SG)
