Literacy Matters.
Macedo, Donaldo
Language Arts, v81 n1 p12-13 Sep 2003
Suggests that in an era of excessive high-stakes testing and a blind embrace of "technicism," literacy not only matters, but may represent one of the last hopes to "salvage our already feeble democracy." Concludes that literacy matters if, and only if, it is viewed as a democratic right and as a human right. (SG)
