First published titled The Feminisation of Elementary School Teaching in the Commonwealth Caribbean. (1998) Institute of Education Annual Volume 1: Editor Ruby King. Institute of Education University of the West Indies, Kingston Jamaica: Pp 3-42.

There are few studies that have been done of the feminization of teaching outside of North America. This study traces the gender composition of elementary school teachers in private and public schools in the Commonwealth Caribbean over the 150 odd-year period 1837 to 1995. It uses the Latrobe Report of 1837-38 as its base and official reports and documents thereafter. The paper documents and critiques the explanation of the feminization of teaching in North America and offers an alternative conceptual framework. It then documents the gender composition of elementary school teachers in private and public schools in the Bahamas, Barbados, Grenada, Jamaica, St Vincent, Trinidad and also Tobago. It then examines the feminization of elementary school teaching in the Commonwealth Caribbean within the conceptual frameworks outlined in the study.
