Ministries of Education in Small States

Case Studies of Organisation and Management

image of Ministries of Education in Small States

The conventional literature on public administration is dominated by the pattern and concerns of large countries. It does not address the needs of small countries, which have very different organisational and managerial frameworks. For example, what degree of specialisation is possible in a ministry which has only a small number of professional staff? And what are the implications for management of highly personalised societies in which everybody seems to know everybody else?



This book presents 14 studies written by people who are actually grappling with the issues about which they write, and will be of value to academics as well as to administrators and trainers. It is a companion to Making Small Practical: The Organisation and Management of Ministries of Education in Small States.

Barbados

Barbados is the most easterly of the Caribbean islands. It is 34 kilometres long and 22 kilometres wide, and despite the small total number of inhabitants is densely populated. The island was settled (but not ' discovered') by the British in 1627, and because it was difficult to attack from the sea it never changed hands in the colonial wars of the 17th and 18th centuries.
