This paper draws its rationale from statements made by some Caribbean political leaders and other thinkers on the need to relate education closely to economic development. More specifically, it has a base in two documents issued by the governments of Montserrat and St. Kitts-Nevis, which enunciated programmes of educational reform aimed at economic development. Economic trends in both islands are teased out from a short study of their economic activities; and educational ideals, either stated or normally associated with the trends, are listed. These ideals and activities are critically examined with a view to illustrating some of the problems involved in the kind of educational innovation envisaged. Finally, some tentative suggestions are made for a strategy that might be adopted in Montserrat and St. Kitts-Nevis, and perhaps in other Caribbean territories with similar economic backgrounds and similar educational philosophies
