Unshackling literacy: a plea for a political vision of its rehabilitation
This publication spotlights the problem of adult literacy in Africa. It examines the recommendations put forward by the many conferences on adult education that have taken place since 1949; reviews their implementation and considers the underlying issues hampering development. This book further adds to the debate on the role of structures, both at an institutional level and within civil society and their impact on education. Finally, it emphasizes the importance of local languages in adult education and the need to promote their usage within modern society.--Publisher's description.
