Education in Grenada--Marxism or Pan-Africanism? [and] Churches in Grenada: Doing Theology in the Struggles of the People. [and] Grenada's New Airport: A Treat or a Threat?
Alexander, E. Curtis
Reported are the author's personal accounts of a tour of Grenada to determine the extent to which Marxist-Leninist thought was being taught in schools, the relationship between the clergy and the government of Grenada, and whether the new international airport posed a threat to U.S. national security. In the new educational system, a Centre for Popular Education (CPE) is implementing an adult education literacy program. Curricula developed for use in the CPE program are devoid of Marxian and Pan-Africanism dogmatic thought. In his search for a liberation theological movement, the author's travels took him to churches, the National Library, lay persons, priests, and to Pope Paul's Ecumenical Centre. The present state of church-state relations is one of mutual respect and tolerance. The development of a liberation theological movement is only in its embryonic stages. A tour of the new airport showed that the airport is not a threat to anybody's security. (RM)
