    As a former British Colony, St. Kitts and Nevis has inherited its education system from Britain.  As a result the delivery of education in St. Kitts and Nevis was under the terms and conditions of Britain.  The colonies, therefore, had to follow a meaningless seasons of winter, spring, summer and autumn formed a predominant part of the school curriculum.  Those of us who are old enough, no doubt can remember the emphasis placed on the three ‘R’s of ‘Reading, Riting and Rithmetic’ in school.  We had to learn and adapt the British way of life.


    The history of our modern education system began in 1967.  This was when the late Hon. Fitzroy Bryant, a youthful and highly intelligent Minister of Education introduced the Comprehensive System of Education.  This new development brought with it a range of concepts that stakeholders in Education appeared willing to adapt.


    Today, education in St. Kitts and Nevis is universal, compulsory from age 5 - 16, and co-educational.  The merits and demerits of these characteristics have been debated again and again, both in the halls of academia and in the public domain, with no unanimous consensus thereon.
