This research explores the views and priorities of children and young people in Fiji on policy issues that are relevant to them. The first phase of this research focuses on children and young people’s views on education. As part of this research, a Children and Young People’s Forum on Education in Fiji was held in June 2009, in collaboration with Save the Children Fiji. The forum sought to provide insights into children and young people’s experiences of education and their views on how to ensure that school is a positive experience for all children in Fiji.
The aims of the forum were threefold:
– To provide children and young people with a safe space in which they could discuss their experiences of school —good and bad;
– To provide children and young people with an opportunity to make recommendations on how to ensure that school is a positive experience for all children in Fiji; and
– To provide a foundation for educational policies and school practices that are genuinely children-centred and able to progress the human rights of all children.
