Harris, W. V. Ancient Literacy, 1989 Harvard Univ. Press
CRINT I.2 , ed. S. Safrai
Chaim Rabin, "Hebrew and Aramaic in the First Century ibid
Fitzmyer, J. "The Languages of Palestine in the First Century AD"
in CBQ 32 (1970)

There is a treatment by Safrai on Education in the 1st century, I'll
have to look for it.
