Title: Ambivalence towards literacy as school learning
Author: Kafle, Hem Raj
Description: My literacy narrative focuses on the early days of my learning to read and write. My experience with learning and doing what the school demanded was not too pleasant but I somehow made it through school and literacy and learning has certainly become a hallmark of my personal development and position in society. My experience with literacy has taught me that learning and knowledge that a person gains and the structure of school education may or may not be compatible, but formal education nonetheless determines the professional opportunities for an individual.
