Annotation "Male Underachievement in High School Education offers another side to the popular theory of the marginalized Caribbean male by challenging the assumption that boys fail simply because girls achieve. The distinction is in fact a subtler one. Parry broadens the scope of this study to consider the historical context of gender relationships, the development of gender identities, and features of class division as significant factors in determining male educational performance in the Caribbean."--BOOK JACKET.

The papers for this special issue were selected from a pool of nearly 700 presentations which were made at the 10th Congress of the World Council of Comparative Education Societies (WCCES), which was held in Cape Town, South Africa, from 12 to 17 July 1998. The congress was hosted by the Southern African Comparative and History of Education Society (SACHES) and held on the campuses of the University of the Western Cape and the University of Cape Town. The papers were selected by the convenors of the conference's standing commissions, which provided a significant focus for the conference proceedings. These commissions were on the following themes: Teachers and teacher education Curriculum - Higher education - Lifelong learning - Language, literacy and basic education - Gender and education Policy - Theory and theory shifts Basic education in Africa Peace and Justice Dependency European Education Policy Research in Africa Culture, Indigenous Knowledge and Learning The papers presented, as the discussion below makes clear, ranged widely in subject matter and theoretical perspective and addressed issues of concern both to individual countries and to regions of the world. While some of the papers use comparison as an approach, it remains a matter of concern that the comparative perspective is so little in evidence. It is hoped that the com parative research approach will be more in evidence in the future.

Throughout their history, the Jamaican people perpetually struggle to survive under extraordinarily harsh economic and social conditions. From a historical perspective, this is fundamental to understanding the psyche of Jamaicans migrating to and settling in Canada in search of a better and more prosperous life. Therefore, their courage and determination have a backdrop, which the reader must be familiar with in order to understand the Jamaican desire for respect, peace and dignity. Significantly this book provides a classic account of the Jamaican experience settling in Canada over a period of five decades starting from the 1950s and lasting until the 2000s. It is divided into five chapters, three of which encompass interviews with individuals who immigrated to Canada. Each of the three chapters covers a twenty year period: the 1950s and 60s, the 1970s and 80s, and the 1990s and beyond. In order to provide a credible description of what the general experience might entail, three heuristic methods were employed to gather the most accurate data available. A literature review was conducted to expand and strengthen the author’s knowledge base of the subject matter. The author researched a number of books, newspaper articles and internet publications which provided critical perspectives from writers who tried to interpret attitudes and behaviors directed at Jamaicans on their journey towards settling in Canada. These perspectives include covert and overt issues connected to various categories of immigrants: those who came under the nursing, domestic, and seasonal agricultural worker programs and those who came as visitors. Furthermore, a plethora of literature was reviewed about Jamaicans, in general, (including middle and upper class Jamaicans who came to Canada significantly as independents) and their achievements. This secondary information and paper-based survey data assisted the author in crafting the last two chapters of the book.

Caribbean Discourse in Inclusive Education Volume II “Responding to Learner Diversity and Learner Difficulties” shares selected critical reflections and recommendations on the way educational communities respond to student diversity and difficulties learning. These contexts include the Caribbean, the Diaspora, and beyond. Authors explore issues and strategies for realizing and sustaining the agenda of education for all within primarily, but not limited to, the Caribbean. While the authors are aware of the ongoing debate between the terms ‘education for all’ and ‘inclusive education’, we use these terms interchangeably. We hold the position that inclusive education is about commitment to removing barriers to optimum learning for all learners regardless of age, ability, ethnicity, gender, geography, race, religion, sexual orientation or other differences. ‘Responding to Learner Diversity and Difficulties’ extend the discourse to include stakeholders committed to sharing their experiences and strategies for overcoming barriers to inclusive education. This second volume presents research that examines how teachers can respond to students with disabilities and difficulties learning, teach challenging curriculum content in mathematics and literacy, build citizenship through student voice, improve teacher practice via co-teaching and critical reflection, promote inclusive practice through leadership and advocacy. It can be used as a core text or companion reader for students at the undergraduate and graduate levels, lecturers, practitioners, researchers and policy makers.
