Grenada

Summary

Grenada needs to make education a priority. Although there have been improvements in awareness and funding, the educational standards in Grenada are not yet where they should be. More funds need to be directed toward technology (as indicated by the Crochu study) and equipment and materials need to be updated so students are learning information before it is outdated. Students, especially those in rural areas, are getting only a basic education that does not always prepare them for higher institutions.
