The Education Statistical Digest 2018-2019 – St. Vicent and the Grenadines
The Education Statistical Digest is reflective of data from the 2000-2001 to 2018-2019 Academic Year. Information for the period prior to the 2000-2001, is available in the 2012-2013 Digest online at www.stats.gov.vc under publications at the top or at www.education.gov.vc/education/ under the publications tab. Alternately, it can also be accessed on the Government’s website at www.gov.vc , under ministries, the education tab and then publications. This document is prepared primarily by the Planning and Research Units within the Ministry of Education in St. Vincent and the Grenadines with assistance from the Human Resource Department, The Examination and Assessment Units and also the Education Media Unit.
The Education Districts have been realigned based on a recommendation received from the Central Statistical Office. The boundaries of the education districts are now the same as those used for the Census Districts thereby improving comparability with education data and other data sets from the wider population. The data presented in the 2018-2019 Statistical Digest is reflective of thirteen education districts instead of the previous eleven districts. The maps and tables for each level of education, have therefore been adjusted to guide the end user accordingly.
The Planning and Research Units within the Ministry of Education expresses their deepest thanks to the Early Childhood Administrators, Primary Heads, Secondary Principals, Principals of Technical Institutes, and Heads of Special Education Centres for their assistance in the preparation of this document, via the submission of the Annual School Questionnaire. Hence, we pause again to say thanks.
We express our deepest gratitude to all those who assisted in the preparation of this document. Firstly, special mention is made of Mr. Anil Sutherland and Ms. Yinca Lewis , who has worked tirelessly in providing student performance data. Also, Mrs. Jozene Franklyn, and Ms. Samantha Ferdinand, who facilitated the initial data collection and collation from the institutions. We also welcome Mr. Alexis Caine, the Deputy Education Planner who quite ably assisted in the preparation of this document. Additionally, we express our deepest gratitude to Mr. Camillus Pitt and his team for assisting in the preparation of some data sets which enhanced the quality of this document would not have been possible. Finally, we say thanks to the Education Media Unit who graciously supplied photographs for enhancing the appearance of this publication and a very special thank you to Ms. Rosemarie Lewis who continues to maintain her usual high standard in designing our cover page.
