Ministry of Education to monitor private schools


There are 18 private schools existing in Fiji including international schools.

Out of this, only two are recognised by the Ministry of Education.

Minister of Education, Mr Filipe Bole says private schools established in Fiji without the authorisation of the Ministry of Education are unacceptable.

Government according to Mr Bole controls the curriculum, fees and even the qualification of teachers. These also apply to private schools.

Furthermore the Ministry of Education as regulator has the authority to walk into any school and be accessible to any information it seeks.
