Progress in the field of education in B.G. has always been slow (at times almost negligible), but the accumulated effect undoubtedly presents quite a satisfying picture of improvement both in Primary and Secondary educational facilities. The result is that more students are able to attain the higher levels of education, and Guianese students have already won high reputations at the U.C.W.L, and in Universities in Great Britain, Canada, and the U.S.A. These are the men and women whom B.G. expects to lead her into the Promised Land of political autonomy and economic self-sufficiency, and to bequeath her with a cultural identity. But the important question now is what does B.G. have to offer these students on their return — or rather, if they return.

Earlier this year the three U.C.W.L lecturers who were in B.G. to interview prospective students of the University, led a discussion which touched on the subject. For the Science students the prospects are quite good and will probably remain so for some time, but for the Arts students (who are still in the majority) the future is not very rosy. Young men who return home can find employment in the Civil Service at a salary of $240 per month while the females are even more unfortunate and must be prepared to accept $147. Thus, after educating himself (or herself) at a cost of several thousand dollars, the young Guianese is being asked to return and accept the salary of a Class I Clerk. Moreover, the chances of early promotion are also decidedly thin, since, owing to the fact that the Civil Service has already reached saturation point, those at the top must leave before there are any vacancies. The newcomers must therefore abound in the virtue of patience, especially since many top level Civil Servants are comparatively young men. The situation is even worse in the teaching profession where there is only one Govt. Secondary school for boys and one also for girls which automatically eliminates the possibility of transfer as in other Government departments. These are the conditions which the young Guianese is offered, and patriotic sentiment towards his home mud must make him return when they are excellent opportunities abroad with respect both to salary scales and working conditions.

If in spite of everything patriotic favour prevails and Guianese accept these conditions, then they must demand a price — the price of independence. Not that this would prove a panacea and provide them with lucrative salaries, but at least it would give them something to strive for. In the past Guianese who returned home with optimism in their breasts were speedily disillusioned. After some time the majority, became completely uninterested in their country's future, and were quite satisfied with a modicum of social and economic security. Others became narrow- minded and refrained from any agitation for improvement for fear that they would get a black mark against their names and perhaps hamper their chances of further promotion, forgetting that their biggest black mark is their skin and their history. Lastly, there are a few who lose the common touch and eventually identify them- selves with the master race. Independence would go a long way towards dispelling these various attitudes of fear, apathy,, and hostility, since once the country is independent it must either sink or swim by itself, and the chances are that the instinct of self-preservation will assert itself.
