This paper utilises the ‘Life History’ research approach. The main areas of investigation are social equity, racism and the cultural experiences of Jamaican teachers living and working in England and the United States. Five teachers were interviewed from each country to solicit the required data. My association with the issues explored and personal experiences in the context of this research also provide rich qualitative data for analysis. From the findings, it is clear that many Jamaican teachers have experienced social exclusion and racism within these countries. It is hoped that the findings from this research can be used to enhance social equity and opportunities for Jamaican teachers in England and the United States of America.
