Pacific 2010: Opportunities for Non-formal Education in Melanesia
National Centre for Development Studies, Research School of Pacific and Asian Studies, Australian National University, Jan 1, 1996 - Education - 52 pages
The provision of adequate and appropriate education is a challenge faced by all governments. The particular challenge faced by both government and non-government policy makers in Melanesia is to ensure that, where 'mainstream' education is inappropriate or unavailable, opportunities for self improvement exist alongside the formal education system. There is a clear need for non-formal education in Pacific island countries but it must be focused in order to satisfy the needs of the people it is intended to target. Here, local success stories highlight the potential benefits of an integrated non-formal education system. This book examines the need for non-formal education to become an integral part of education planning in Melanesian countries and offers guidelines for decisionmakers.
