Organization of Eastern Caribbean States, St. Lucia.
This document, developed by the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) working group in 1991, presents recommendations for educational reform for OECS region. The plan was derived through analysis of the educational systems of the sub-region, interaction with chief education officers of OECS countries, national and subregional consultations, and a literature review. The first section describes the purpose of the reform effort, process, context of the eight Eastern Caribbean states, the developmental imperatives dictating educational reform, and the characteristics and state of education in the subregion. The second section describes the proposed reform strategies for: (1) harmonizing the education systems of the OECS; (2) reforming early childhood, primary, secondary, tertiary, and adult education; (3) reforming the terms and conditions of service of teachers; (4) reforming the management and administration of the education systems; and (5) reforming educational finance. Appendices contain project area profiles, a list of participants in the national and sub-regional consultations, and regional comparisons of performance in Caribbean Exam Council examinations. (LMI)
