From the Foreword:
The present bulletin is another in the Office of Education's long established series on education in other countries. This bulletin deals with some of the most apparent educational trends at the present time in European affiliated areas of the Caribbean. These include the British, Netherlands, and French affiliated areas. The educational ties of these areas with the United States add importance and interest to such a study. To cite just one example, more than 1,400 students from the British Caribbean areas alone were enrolled in institutions of higher learning in the United States during the 1958-59 school year, according to published statistics of the privately supported Institute of International Education. Information in this bulletin is based in considerable part on direct observation by the author of educational institutions and practices, and on discussions with educational and other specialists, in certain of the Caribbean areas during the latter part of 1958. These observations and discussions were supplemented by extensive study of published source materials and other writings on the area generally and its educational patterns and facilities.
