Caribbean Region: Access, Quality, and Efficiency in Education. A World Bank Country Study.
World Bank, Washington, DC.
This study explores education and training systems of the Caribbean nations that are members both of The World Bank and the Caribbean Group for Cooperation in Economic Development (CGCED). The study does not attempt to provide a detailed blueprint for each country or set of institutions or present new research findings. Overall, the emphasis is to highlight the commonality of education sector issues across the region and to discuss successful ongoing initiatives, as well as outline promising new policy and investment options meriting further exploration to enhance access to and the quality and efficiency of education. The "Caribbean Education Action Plan" summarizes the options. It is hoped that the report will catalyze further debate among governments and within the international development community on an appropriate human resources development strategy for the Caribbean for the 1990s and beyond. Three principal areas for further work include: (1) educational measurement and research to guide policy development; (2) the supply and distribution of educational materials; and (3) expansion of continuing education opportunities for all age groups. The report includes a foreword, an executive summary and recommendations, the proposed Caribbean education action plan, three annexes, a statistical appendix, a listing of 135 references and 47 other works consulted, and a map of the Caribbean region.
