A BOOK on the history of the Council of Pacific Education has been launched.
The book titled "A History of the Council of Pacific Education 1980 - 2010" was launched by Education International president Susan Hopgood at the Regional Conference of Pacific Teachers in Nadi last Thursday.
While launching the book, Ms Hopgood read excerpts from its foreword.
"Most nations, governments and regimes now accept that education, the acquisition of transformative knowledge, is necessary to forge the way ahead for society and coming generations," she read.
The former secretary general of the Council of Pacific Education, Krishna Datt, said the book was a record rather than a history of COPE.
