Educational Deficits in the Caribbean. Atlas Series No. 2. Collection of Monographs and Studies of Education.
Organization of American States, Washington, DC. Dept. of Educational Affairs.
This atlas supplies data on the educational situation of Barbados, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Santa Lucia, Dominican Republic, Surinam, and Trinidad and Tobago. Chapter 1 shows a global panorama consolidated at the regional level of the illiteracy problem for the population from ten years of age and over and of the groups without instruction from five to fourteen years of age. The second chapter provides information on the same problems by country. Content consists of (1) maps of geographic location representing the magnitude of the illiteracy problem and the groups without instruction for each country in the Caribbean and for each country at the geographic unit level, (2) statistical tables with absolute and relative figures of the two large problems--illiteracy and groups without instruction--shown at the regional and country levels and by country with distribution by departments, provinces, areas, or districts. An annex recapitulates the first atlas which included information on the rest of the member nations of the Organization of American States regarding both problems of illiteracy and of groups without instruction. (The introductory narrative and most other materials are in both English and Spanish.) (YLB)
