George D says:
"What it indicates to me is the placing of education in a subordinate role to other networks or systems of thought and in terms of value. That does not necessarily mean that education (aka, adult literacy education) is de-valued or unimportant. What I do believe it means is that adult literacy education is defined and processed by other systems of thought, value, and socio-cultural organization.
That may not necessarily be negative..."
George, while I agree in principle that the "subordination" of education may not be negative, can you offer any thoughts about how this could be positive? I think you are on to something. Of course, to educators education is paramount, and I spend a lot of time moaning about people who don't seem to "get" this. Maybe it is I who needs to "get" the "subordinate" point of view better.... Debbie
