considerations
Considerations
  • Varied work hours (out of their control because of types of work)
  • Weekends used to care for family and church affairs
  • Shameful to disclose low-level or no literacy (private conversation)
  • Children use literacy superiority against parents

Need for flexibility in communicating/teaching adults:

gender issues
Gender Issues
  • More women than men lack literacy skills
  • More women than men would attend literacy programs
  • Men and Women have been thru hardships, but society is patriarchal; More women are victims of abuse, rape, etc.
  • Men are generally the political players
