In the last four decades Belize has seen many attempts at reform in the various sectors of the system, many with the potential to effect significant changes in the system. Since early childhood programs were established during the period, one could consider the efforts in that sector as movements toward the establishment of policies and practices, rather than as reform. The primary sector was the most active in attempts at change, the most significant being the Primary Education Development project which was implemented in 1992. The governments policy of free tuition and its decision to establish the University College of Belize were the most significant policies in the attempt to make secondary and tertiary level education accessible to more Belizeans.
The participation rate of the implementers in the planning of projects and the availability of local funds are the two main factors that determine the success or failure of initiatives.
