Title: Schooling in Pacific Islands Nations (PINs) : what place, what role?

Author: Tuimaleali'ifano, Eileen
Subject:  culture and education
Volume: Vol.30, 2007
Collation:

Abstract: Concern with the achievements and adequacy of formal education systems in the contemporary Pacific has, over the past thirty years, led many Pacific Islander educationists to advocate the thoroughgoing adoption of cultural approaches as the remedy for perceived deficiencies. Greater use of Pacific epistemologies and cultures in all areas of education-curricula, pedagogy, psychology, learning theories, assessment techniques and so on-is, they contend, the means most likely to break down the 'foreignness' of the school system and step outside the notion that the primary purpose of schooling is national development. This paper, taking account of the contextual realities of the present globalising world, argues that cultural approaches are no longer enough. Systems and teachers must be prepared to operate more flexibly and variously, rising to the challenge of the mixed classrooms and global consciousness that constitute the world of today's students.

Title: Policy responses to threats to rural household incomes Seaqaqa, Northern Fiji

Author: Tubuna, Sakiusa
Subject:  Agricultural policy
 Poverty
 Small holder agriculture
Volume: Vol.30, 2007
Collation: p. 87-118

Abstract: The incomes of people in Fiji who rely direcdy on agricultural production are under threat from a number of institutional changes or shocks occurring now, or expected in the near future. We examine recent evidence on current rural and urban incomes in Fiji and consider the sensitivity of the welfare of different groups of rural people to these shocks. The rural data are drawn from a census of rural households in Seaqaqa Tikina in the Northern Region of Fiji. The potential for alternative responses open to the government and individual producers to moderate the adverse impact of these shocks is considered in the context of an optimal policy mix.
