Title:Educational challenges of the Caribbean connection with Africa
Author:Edmondson, Locksley
Periodical:Journal of African Studies (UCLA)
Geographic terms:Subsaharan Africa
Abstract:Historical and contemporary factors demand that educational systems, wherever located, incorporate a concern with African affairs, cutting across various disciplines, whether focused on area, comparative, or international studies. This applies especially to Third World peoples, who in varying degrees have shared similar experiences and face similar challenges, and more to those (as can be found comprising majorities or substantial minorities in the Caribbean) whose ancestral roots are traceable to Africa. Sections of the article: The search for educational relevance - Aspects and implications of the connection with Africa - Selected educational issues and challenges - Education for nation building and liberation. Notes, appendix: Terms of reference of the UNICA Committee on the survey of Caribbean resources, interests, and needs in African studies.
