This book explores the changes and developments which have affected education within the Commonwealth over the years. As the Secretary-General notes: “The Commonwealth has a strong record and tradition of co-operation in education, encompassing articulation of values, exchange of ideas and direct learning from each other, This book is a reminder of that record and tradition and offers a refreshing kaleidoscope of Commonwealth educational action.”



Education for All in the Commonwealth: What are the Issues?

This chapter is based on a lecture given at the Palace of Westminster, London on 14 March 2002, under the auspices of the Council for Education in the Commonwealth and the UK National Commission for UNESCO. It is included here because it moves forward from the past achievements and challenges surveyed in Chapter 1 to suggest what will be the main education issues to be confronted by the Commonwealth in the next decades.
