Abstract: 

Since its independence in 1962, Jamaica has been involved in an ongoing process of education reform to address inequities in its education system, respond to changing needs, and provide the best education for its populace. Achieving quality, access, and equity in the education system have been key principles underlying these reforms. Since the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development by the global community in 2015, Sustainable Development Goal Four, which seeks to “Ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning,” has been the foundation driving these reforms.
