Opinions on science education in the Caribbean - a science opinion poll
School of Education, UWI
This paper reports the results of applying a battery of attitude assessments to practicing student teachers in a largely rural Caribbean country of mixed ethnic groupings. The tests reviewed: 1) aims of primary education; 2) constraints imposed; 3) attitudes towards stated aims, child-centeredness, and innovation; and 4) attitudes to science education. The results and their implications for teacher education are discussed.
