Abstract

Jamaica's education system is based on the British model, although there is an increasing amount of US influence on the education sector. Education in Jamaica is becoming increasingly centralised, mainly due to policies that seek to improve equalities in access and opportunity. This has been highlighted by two policies: the introduction of a new system of assessment, the National Assessment Programme (NAP) and the upgrading in the status of many secondary schools (British Council, 2001).
