This book explores policy and practice at the postsecondary level in the South Pacific and sets an agenda for the twentyfirst century.



Current Provisions

Most Pacific islands countries began formal schooling with educational institutions set up by Christian missions in the nineteenth century. The academic level was generally low and religious instruction took up much of the curriculum. After the establishment of central (in most cases colonial) governments, church schools were supplemented by state schools.
