Aid for Education

The issue of educational aid to small nation states in the Commonwealth is considered by Rudolph Goodridge and Bevis Peters. Attention is concentrated on some of the advantages derived from educational aid, the problems which are inherent in current aid programmes and processes, and ways by which aid could have a more meaningful part to play in the long-term development of education in small states. In particular it is suggested that support is needed to assist small states develop their own long-term research, planning and policy development capabilities.
