Writing Wrong: Conundrums of Literacy and Human Rights
Kell, Catherine
Convergence, v37 n3 p27-40 2004
The EFA Global Monitoring Report of 2002 contains two interesting paragraphs. In this article the author aims to explore what lies between those two paragraphs, in order to put forward some ideas about the role and future of literacy and its relation to human rights. The author hopes to show the continuing importance of adult literacy work and the fact that it cannot be disregarded if the ideals of EFA are to have any reality. The author also addresses literacy and adult basic education separately.
