Education and democracy in revolutionary Grenada

Rosa Mara Torres
Vol 5, Number 1, p.1
Through two concerns - increasing access and educating democratically - education became a prominent and permanent issue in the Grenadian revolution. A review of the economic, political and social issues raised by the revolutionary process led to the diagnosis of education as “the most critical factor” in the advance and the consolidation of the revolution. After the North American invasion, all revolutionary structures and vestiges of the accompanying educational activities were dismantled. Nevertheless, it is impossible to erase what those four and one-half years of revolutionary experience meant for the Grenadian people.
