Open Schooling as a Strategy for Second-chance Education in the Pacific: A Desk Study Report
The country Report in this study confirm that the provision of conventional schooling is neither adequate nor effective in fulfilling the national and regional aspirations of EFA. The Report highlight uneven access to secondary education because of too few secondary schools, large numbers of untrained teachers and the high costs of maintaining secondary education. In the midst of all this, high numbers of students continue to leave school at various levels without a secondary qualification. Low transition rates from primary to secondary and from lower to upper secondary levels are worrying in all PICs.
