ANNOTATION

Popular education played a vital role in the twelve-year guerrilla war against the Salvado ran government. Fighting to Learn is a study of its pedagogy and politics. Popular educat ion brought literacy to poor rural communities abandoned by the official education system and to peasant combatants in the guerrilla army. Those who had little education taught those who had none. By cultivating skills and raising morale, popular education contributed tangibly to political and military gains in the war.
