Adult Literacy Education on the Canadian Frontier.
Walter, Pierre
Adult Basic Education, v13 n1 p3-18 Spr 2003
Canada's Frontier College began in 1899 to bring literacy and citizenship education to immigrant men; in the 1920s it offered university education. However, its early history embodied a legacy of nativism, anticommunism, racism, and sexism as it attempted to assimilate adult literacy learners into Anglo-Canadian sociocultural norms.
