Theme: Guyana at 50: Understanding Our Independence Journey

Introduction

Education in all forms is an important vehicle for individual and collective advancement and the enhancement of national life. The Golden Jubilee affords us an opportunity to examine the various knowledge traditions, the evolution of Guyanese thought and their contributions to Guyana’s development. It also provides a moment to think about how these processes and ideas can inform the next 50 years.
