This paper outlines constitutional reform in Commonwealth Caribbean countries in the post-war period leading to adult suffrage and representative government and sequential policy measures to establish democracy in these countries. It also outlines policy measures in education to democratize educational opportunities to ensure equal and equitable access of all citizens and residents to all levels of public education. It then looks at changes in the gender composition of particular types of schools and colleges consequent upon the implementation of these policies and explains the observed patterns by reference to the Theory of Place.
