Free

SKU: cje-45-1-1

It is with a mix of emotions that I write this note to our readers. I am sad because this is the final issue of the Caribbean Journal of Education. On the other hand, I am excited that the CJE will be merged with the Journal of Education and Development in the Caribbean and relaunched as CJED—the Caribbean Journal of Education and Development. The CJE has served as a forum, since 1974, to stimulate thought and discussion about issues in education that affect Caribbean people in the region and worldwide.
