There’s a need to do a better job at tapping into the vast educational and research resources of commonwealth countries for our benefit.
This was highlighted by Attorney General and Education Minister Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum at the the Conference of Commonwealth Education Ministers in Nadi.
He says it’s important for Commonwealth member countries to remain committed to many of the same principles and explore new ways of thinking to engage with our students and young people.
”By facilitating the transfer of knowledge between our countries, we can develop invaluable materials, such as research papers, analytical reports and other data that can assist leaders and policymakers in putting forward bold, inclusive and innovative policies in education. Policies tailored to their own education sectors, but that are based on wisdom, evidence and experiences collected from around the world.”
Sayed-Khaiyum says policymakers should think outside the box and introduce innovative ideas that will further develop the education system.
Sayed-Khaiyum highlighted Fiji is fully committed to the agenda for expanding access to high-quality education.
