The Journeys of Jamaican Teachers in England and United States (From 2001 to Present): A Multiple Case Study
The paper utilized the ‘Life History’ research approach. The main areas investigated were social equity, racism and cultural experiences of Jamaican teachers living and working in England and United States. Five teachers were interviewed from each country in order to solicit the required data. My own personal experiences were also be highlighted based on my association with the issues explored and the context of this research. These experiences offered rich qualitative data for analysis. From the findings, it was clear that many Jamaican teachers have experienced social exclusion and racism within these countries. It is hoped that the finding from this research can be used to enhance social equity and opportunities for Jamaican teachers in these countries.
