Distinct Needs of Rural Literacy Programs (1994)

This report discusses the unique geographic, economic, social, and employment-related characteristics of rural literacy programs in Ontario, which create barriers to teaching, learning, and program and community development. These barriers include isolation; increased expenses due to travel, long distance, and reduced numbers; limited supporting services; negative connotation of 'literacy'; limited relevant materials; and minimal research into the problems and literacy programs of rural Ontario. The report presents six recommendations to address these barriers.
