Educational trends throughout the world hold wider and deeper significance for American education today than in any previous period of our country. Thousands upon thousands of foreign students from many nations are enrolled each year in American colleges and universities. Increasingly the vital part which education contributes to the development of society is being recognized by peoples and their governments. The present bulletin is another in the Office of Education's long established series on education in other countries. This bulletin deals with some of the most apparent educational trends at the present time in European affiliated areas of the Caribbean. These include the British, Netherlands, and French affiliated areas. The educational ties of these areas with the United States add importance and interest to such a study. To cite just one example, more than 1,400 students from the British Caribbean areas alone were enrolled in institutions of higher learning in the United States during the 1958-59 school year, according to published statistics of the privately supported Institute of International Education. Information in this bulletin is based in considerable part on direct observation by the author of educational institutions and practices, and on discussions with educational and other specialists, in certain of the Caribbean areas during the latter part of 1958. These observations and discussions were supplemented by extensive study of published source materials and other writings on the area generally and its educational patterns and facilities. A selected bibliography is included. Two appendixes present: (1) Summary of Recommendations of the Regional Conference on the Training of Teachers in the British Caribbean, 1957; and (2) Summary of Principal Recommendations of the Mission on Higher Technical Education in the British Caribbean. Individual chapters contain footnotes. [Best copy available has been provided.]
