Bid to break tradition

Nasik Swami

SUSTAINED investments can foster world-class education, benchmarked by international quality standards and comparable with the top 30 countries.

This is the belief of NFP leader Professor Biman Prasad as the party laid its vision for 2030 on Thursday.

Prof Prasad said sustained investments would be protected by a teaching profession that attracts, retains and adequately rewards the very best of our students.

"It means an education system that encourages responsibility, fosters debate, promotes risk-taking and independence and provides the technical and language skills for the world stage," he said.

Prof Prasad believes this will break an educational tradition that is built on fostering silence.

"This in itself will unleash creativity among our youths that will take our national development to great heights.

"It means a Fiji where information ways will have linked the learning experiences of children in primary schools in Beqa to knowledge labs in Bangalore; arts in schools in Rotuma to museums in Rome, and design in schools across Serua to design centres in Shanghai."

He said the NFP believed in a Fiji where colleges and universities attracted high performing students from across the world.

"I want a Fiji where our sons and daughters find their dreams at home rather than seeking them abroad."
