Item Type: Conference or Workshop Item (UNSPECIFIED)

This paper is set within the field of comparative education, particularly education borrowing. Its original contribution lies in its focus on small states, which are often neglected in comparative studies. It probes the possibilities of education borrowing in Barbados and Trinidad for the purpose of improving the quality of education in developing countries, one of the Education for All initiative goals. The significance of this study is that it may have implications for policy borrowing for Education for All goals, especially with regards to the Caribbean. In this pilot study, the author interviewed 14 educationalists in Barbados and Trinidad, discussing policy and curriculum initiatives, which formed a rigorous basis for the subsequent full study. The author submitted an abstract to a refereeing committee and upon acceptance was invited to submit a full article to the CD Rom proceedings for the conference.
