Abstract:
This thesis is a study of the political behaviour of teachers' associations in Jamaica where education has long been closely associated with occupation and status. One important result of this high social value of education is that it has been, for a considerable time, one of the most visible areas of public life. Moreover, for most of the period that this study covers - 1892-1967 - elementary school teaching provided one of the main channels of upward social mobility for ambitious sons of the upper echelons of the peasantry and lower middle-classes. Any examination therefore which includes teachers, education and politics in Jamaica from the nineteenth century may begin from a number of viable approaches - this study represents only one.
