This book explores tensions surrounding the teaching of literacy in three settings of nontraditional adult education: correctional education, vocational education, and the Highlander Folk School. What literacy is supposed to do, and thus what it means, varies widely across these discourses. At its center of the book is the belief that teachers and scholars must understand the worlds toward which they, and the institutions they teach within, aspire to create through the process of education.
