Conclusion

While education outcomes for Pacific peoples are mostly improving steadily, the education system is still failing to deliver equitable outcomes for Pacific peoples. Lower levels of literacy and numeracy for many Pacific children are not addressed effectively by teachers early on. These lead to poor learning outcomes in secondary school and low levels of qualifications for Pacific young people. Cultural differences are not well understood or supported by many teachers, making their teaching less effective for Pacific students.

For those Pacific students who do succeed at school and go on to achieve degree-level qualifications, the benefits to their income are greater than for non-Pacific people. These benefits extend also to improved well-being of Pacific families and communities, and better educational outcomes for their children and future generations.
