Micronesia Education and Training



Almost all adults in the Micronesia Federation can read and write. Schooling is compulsory for children between the ages of 6 and 14, but many students leave school sooner than that.

The school system follows the American model with an eight-year elementary school and four years in high school. The training is free of charge but suffers from a lack of teaching materials and educated teachers.

There is a general college with, among other things, teacher training on the island of Pohnpei and a maritime and fishing academy on the island of Yap. Many of the residents who acquire higher education choose to do so in the United States. It is common among highly educated to live and work abroad, primarily in the United States.
