Beschreibung

From being a Spanish colony to being a semi-colony of USA post 1898, the Puerto Rican case exemplifies a brilliant story of transition in a country s Education system. This book captures these transformations in the insular education system during 1948-60 vis-à-vis the crucial role played by the Catholic Church. The parallel aims in this book are-to analyze the education system in Puerto Rico in light of its social, political and economic status during 1948-60 to see the pivotal role of the Catholic Church in the education system and its self-redefinition post American suzerainty. Moreover,to trace the simultaneous emergence of the Catholic Church as a global player in the provision of Development aid (great emphasis on education) in support of the US administration programmes and finally to critique this thrust on developing Puerto Rico and analyze what went wrong? The book deals simultaneously with the entangled themes of education and development and would be of interest to those researching on Puerto Rico. The author s greater objective is to critique the mainstream views on development and the school system from a Global Historical perspective.
