[Xmca-l] Vygotsky and adult literacy program in haiti.

Example of what the haitian government views as the new haiti.  This is an example of the haitian news broadcast on the same channel in haiti.  The first broadcast is in french (for the mulatto elites and petit-bourgeois blacks) and the second in kreyol for the masses.  100 percent of the population speaks kreyol; less than 3 percent speak and or understand french!  I share this bcuz there is a new dynamic taking place in haiti, which I am trying to understand, the mulatto elites are now more likely to speak kreyol at state functions and professional occasions, while petit-bourgeois blacks refuse.  Moreover, as I visit the schools in haiti the professors (from the faculty of applied linguistics) are relying heavily on vygotskyian  theory in the use of kreyol for instruction in elementary schools and the adult reading programs (I am assuming this is a result of the Cuban influence... the majority of the instructors in the adult reading programs are cubans).
