Little has been written on pre-Emancipation education in The Bahamas. The most significant study is that by Rodney Bain whose research extended up to 1823.A study by A. D. Peggs is rich in chronological detail, but rather weak on analysis and interpretation, covers a time period from the beginnings in the early 1800s to the mid-1940s. Important works by Shirley Gordon and John Figueroa supply useful general information on education throughout the West Indian colonies. It is obvious that the 1820s and 1830s are fruitful years for research into the history of Bahamian education.
