A simple message that reflects the changing needs of society and the flexibility one must have to thrive in our society. This statement on illiteracy stands in contrast to the inflexible, static, outcome-driven, bottom-line message from those who direct educational resources in our public schools.
Post-literacy is one of those things that I can't get my 20th century head around. The quote seems to push the idea of intellectual adaptability ... but I assume that intellect (power through knowledge vs feeling or instinct) must be tied to reading and writing.
And I suppose that is where I am getting the mental crux because how can I have the intellect without the literacy?
