In light of the recent call to implement accountability mechanisms in order to raise the quality of Jamaica’s education system, CaPRI (the Caribbean Policy Research Institute) held a one-day conference to look at practical measures that can be taken. The conference was a collaboration among CaPRI, Expanding Educational Horizons (EEH, a USAID/Jamaica-sponsored project), and the Partnership for Educational Revitalization in the Americas (PREAL), an Inter-American Dialogue project. Its purpose was to address the need for education reform in Jamaica, particularly with regard to educational standards.
