This issue, like our last, offers a range of papers in areas relevant to educational concerns in the Caribbean. The focus on education is self-evident, but in this introduction I want to underscore the other mandate of this publication evident in the title, that we interrogate educational issues to propel development in our region.

Introduction The story so far

Free
SKU: cje-20-1-1

This issue of our journal is the first, for some time, to focus on language teaching and learning. Its orientation is toward the teaching of English even though we also look at other foreign languages. By speaking of "other foreign languages'' we are taking a stance about the approach to English teaching in the Jamaican classroom, as in other parts of the region. And this stance is that, at the very least, English can not be regarded as the native language of many of the students.

I would like to specially welcome this issue of JEDIC and the special papers that came out of our inaugural conference, 'Qualitative Inquiry in the Caribbean: Past, Present and Future'. It was a special conference because for the first time so many colleagues (150 or more) came together as a community of qualitative researchers from other departments on the Mona Campus of the University of the West Indies, other universities in Jamaica, our sister campuses and other international universities.

In a journal such as this that includes ‘development’ in its title, it is important that from time to time a6ention is paid to what that word ‘development’ actually means outside of common educational practices. It is a concept that does need some focus as the Caribbean moves forward to introduce a more complex approach to our national and regional preoccupations. One relevant theme which we have not addressed before in approaching the development stance of this journal is that of the Caribbean diaspora.
