The Guyana "Education Strategic Plan (ESP) 2021- 2025 - Vision 2030" has been developed, and will be implemented, at a most interesting point in the country's history. The 2030 Vision for the sector is Providing opportunities for quality, equitable education and lifelong learning for all. This vision is articulated at a time in which major growth in the economy is predicted because of the discovery of oil and gas and also at a time in which it is expected that the extractive industries will be the key drivers of economic growth in the medium term. At the same time the country has a national development strategy, the alignment of Government's educational priorities, which is "in line with the United Nation's agenda 2030 and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In particular, it not only aims to foster sustained economic growth that is low carbon and climate-resilient but also promote social cohesion, good governance and careful management of finite natural resources." In spite of, and perhaps even because of these changes the ultimate goal of this ESP is consistent with the goals of previous plans that is: To contribute to employability and reduction of poverty, by increasing performance at all levels and reducing the disparity between sub-groups.
