Pedagogy and Culture in Conflict: A South Pacific Struggle

John L. Bailey, Eula Ewing Monroe.

Pedagogies currently practiced and observed in the South Pacific still indicate a continuance of training and philosophies reminiscent of colonizing cultures rather than their own. While South Pacific governmental leaders have called for changes towards more culturally appropriate and relevant pedagogies, teacher training institutions are struggling to come to grips with the issue. Many successful possibilities can be found in the international education environment which can be applied to these South Pacific cultures. Suggestions are given.
