Study examines dependency of Kiribati education initiatives on Australian assistance

A study examining the dependency of Kiribati on Australian assistance has been published in the scientific journal Wiley. The study focuses in particular on the Australian-funded Kiribati Education Facility program to include children with disabilities in school programs, which has generated significant improvements in the access of disabled children to school. There is concern that these inclusive education initiatives would not surivive without continued funding from Australia, which is in danger of being cut if the government were to change its developing funding priorities.
