Re-imagining Education in the Commonwealth Caribbean
In Re-imagining Education in the Commonwealth Caribbean, regional scholars examine, through research and case study data, the significant sociocultural issues faced by education systems in the Commonwealth Caribbean.
By: Zellynne Jennings and Deon Edwards-Kerr
Educational policy and practice in the Commonwealth Caribbean, a region comprised of developing nations, have largely been modelled on the educational policies set by the developed nations. These policies when put into practice in the Caribbean often conflict with the sociocultural realities of living in post-colonial small island developing nations. Consequently, attempts at education reform are fraught with difficulties that impact the goal of sustainable development.
In Re-imagining Education in the Commonwealth Caribbean, regional scholars examine, through research and case study data, the significant sociocultural issues faced by education systems in the Commonwealth Caribbean. They discuss and give new insights into how to address issues such as violence in schools and communities, globalisation and education, technology and education, school improvement, community involvement and raising attainment. They provide a useful multidisciplinary guide to effective educational reform, policy and practice in the Commonwealth Caribbean.
