Country Update

After a good think and a big web search, I've decided to focus on education in the Solomon Islands for my research project. This is going to be a huge learning curve as I'm ashamed (if not a tad embarrassed) to admit - I'd never even heard of this place before! Also, I wanted to avoid countries with loads of complicated political turmoil and civil wars - also I wanted somewhere that we really don't hear much about here. The Solomon Islands, it seems, has suffered with civil issues and natural disasters it is one of the top 10 underdeveloped countries of our world. The primary education system is being addressed and there are many current changes. I've even tried to make contact with someone who is this space, i might get lucky and get a reply :-)
