In Pacific island countries, despite the considerable volume of Australian and other aid spread with the best of intentions throughout the region, educational achievement has been less than satisfactory. This study is concerned with the reasons for this disappointing outcome. It outlines and discusses the levels of Australian educational aid to Pacific island countries; analyses the directions of the aid program; and examines the proposition that increased Australian aid for education in Pacific island countries, or at least a different pattern of aid, could lead to improved results. -from Authors
