AbstractThis thesis will consider the historical impacts, methodology, and effects of literacy campaigns in both Post-Revolution Cuba and Nicaragua. Literacy will be examined through the lens of its necessity in educational human rights, and these campaigns will be applied to modern issues in sustainable development. Political implications of radical social form in the context of literacy will be examined to understand the purpose behind education following revolution. Most critically, this work will bring to lightthe great deal of influence the Cuban National Literacy campaign had on Nicaragua’s literacy crusade. In general, this thesis supports the idea that Cuba’s literacy campaign was overall more successful in its literacy achievements even presently because of their continued educational influence in other parts of their world and the minimal foreign influence they have experienced.
