The history and current practices for school systems in the countries of the Oceanic region depend on the economic, political , and cultural circumstances of their countries. Divided into four chronological sections -- pre nineteeth century, nineteenth century, twentieth century and present times -- each chapter traces the factors that have impacted educational philosophy and goals for each country. Identifying available options for students of all economic backgrounds, each chapter also includes a "Day in the Life" feature that shares with readers what a typical student in that country will experience at their school.
