The Growth Of Awareness Of Adult Illiteracy In Britain
Before encouraging you to read the document, one final comment. Reading the essay again after all these years, I find I have used the “male” gender throughout, which looks alien to modern eyes. That was customary in 1977, and using non-gender specific pronouns then would have been thought odd. Nowadays, it jars horribly. However, when I tried to amend the essay in accordance with modern usage, it was such a huge task, I abandoned it. Please accept this as it was originally written, rather than how I would write it today.
