Exploring the Middle Ground: Literacy as Growth.
Demetrion, George
Adult Basic Education, v12 n1 p34-58 Spr 2002

Makes the case for a pragmatic middle ground between structural-functional and radical-transformative interpretations of adult literacy education. Presents a case example of a pragmatic approach.
