Adult literacy education: an ethical endeavor



Adult literacy education: an ethical endeavor



Resources in Education 19(6): p.6



Many of John Dewey's ideas concerning ethics and the universalization of democratic habits of thought and action are especially relevant to a discussion of adult literacy as a means of developing social intelligence in a democratic society. Dewey's basic ethical principles are manifest in approaches to adult literacy education such as those conceived and practiced by Horton and the Highlander Folk School, Freire, Hunter and Harman Coles, and Kozol.
