According to topschoolsintheusa.com, Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI) is an island nation located in the Pacific Ocean, between Hawaii and the Philippines. It consists of two main island groups, the Ratak Chain and the Ralik Chain, which are divided by a deep ocean trench. The total land area of these islands is 181 square miles, making it one of the smallest countries in the world. The Republic’s population was estimated to be 56,836 in 2019. The geography of the Marshall Islands is extremely diverse, with coral reefs as well as low-lying atolls and islands surrounded by lagoons. The highest point in RMI is located on Likiep Atoll at 10 meters above sea level. This country has a tropical climate with temperatures ranging from 27°C to 30°C throughout the year. Education in Marshall Islands is overseen by the Ministry of Education (MOE). It includes primary education for children aged 6-12 years old; secondary education for students aged 13-16 years old; and higher education which provides post-secondary courses through colleges and universities. Primary school consists of 6 years where students learn basic literacy and numeracy skills as well as life skills such as problem solving and communication. Secondary school lasts for 4 years from age 12-16 where pupils specialize in their chosen subjects such as science or business studies before taking their final examinations which determine whether they can progress onto higher education or vocational training programs. The government runs three public universities: College of Marshall Islands (CMI), Kwajalein Junior College (KJC) and Majuro Campus University (MCU). CMI offers associate degrees in areas such as business administration, computer science, environmental sciences, health sciences, hospitality management etc., while KJC offers Associate Degrees in areas such as accounting, business administration etc., Majuro Campus University provides diploma courses related to marine science technology & maritime studies among others. In addition to these public universities there are several private institutions offering vocational training programs such as carpentry or plumbing; language schools providing courses in English; community colleges offering certificate programs; and other specialized schools focusing on specific fields like nursing or engineering. Furthermore there are various international organizations providing educational support to RMI including UNESCO which focuses on capacity building initiatives related to teaching quality improvement programs etc., USAID which provides assistance for educational projects related to health care access & quality improvement initiatives among others; AUF that promotes French language instruction across all grade levels etc., Overall access to educational services has improved significantly over recent decades however there still remain some challenges facing this sector with regards to access especially among disadvantaged communities living on these small island nations where poverty levels remain high albeit decreasing steadily over time due to increased government investment into public services such as healthcare and education among other areas.
