Abstract

Rural students often have less access to opportunities to learn in many parts of the world. Over 70 per cent of the world's 1.2 billion poorest people live in rural areas and 85 per cent em in various countries of Africa, Asia and Latin America. Pacific Island countries also have rural populations with their own challenges. This means all Pacific Islanders have a stake in the well being of rural Pacific. The variables of being small, scattered, isolated, and sparse are common features interacting uniquely to make rural Pacific. This study was done in Choiseul Island, in rural Solomon Islands, on the Opportunity to Learn (OTL) physical education in schools. OTL provides the framework to discuss curriculum, staff, instructional equipment, facilities and resources, policy implementation, and community support in relation to physical education.
