Education begins from foundation

June 22, 2017 5:04 am

If only Fiji and the Pacific can go back to the education foundation, our literacy issue can be addressed.

University of the South Pacific Dean for the Faculty of Arts, Law and Education, Dr Akanisi Kedrayate, says we need to go back to the beginning, to strengthen Early Childhood Education.

She adds USP has now recognized ECE and is putting resources towards this.

Education Minister, Dr Mahendra Reddy, says we need to sit back and think of investment that can go a long way.

He adds early childhood education has been neglected for so many years.

“It demonstrate the level of catching up we need to do. The level of gaps that exists and therefore we need to recognize that gap and plow in a lot of money to catch up and make up for the neglect in this sector over the last two to three decades.”

Fifteen small island states took part in a sub-regional workshop on ECE Teachers Development in Nadi.

The workshop aimed to design a framework for early childhood education in Fiji and the region.
