Education in the Commonwealth

The First 40 Years: From Oxford to Halifax and Beyond

image of Education in the Commonwealth

This book explores the changes and developments which have affected education within the Commonwealth over the years. As the Secretary-General notes: “The Commonwealth has a strong record and tradition of co-operation in education, encompassing articulation of values, exchange of ideas and direct learning from each other, This book is a reminder of that record and tradition and offers a refreshing kaleidoscope of Commonwealth educational action.”




Education, we are reminded in this book, was the focus of collaborative Commonwealth endeavour even before the Commonwealth structures for co-operation (which we now take for granted) came into being. Shared educational values, we are also reminded in this book, form 'the glue which binds the Commonwealth together'. Yet, in recent years, pressing economic and political challenges have led member states rather to downplay their bonds of educational interest.
