The status of education in Enewetak, an island in the Republic of the Marshall Islands, is described in this report. Concern about the island's educational system was generated by the fact that none of the eighth-grade graduates had passed the government high school entrance exam since 1980. A visit made by a representative of the Pacific Region Educational Laboratory (PREL) sought to document the circumstances regarding elementary education, and to assist in developing consensus-building for addressing educational needs. The first sections provide a background of the educational system and describe its current status. Underlying concerns are outlined next, which include cultural displacement, self-esteem and motivation, and health. A plan is offered for using educational and community resources to improve student achievement, with emphasis on implementing school restructuring within the larger context of community life. Appendices contain the educational development and community involvement plans, correspondence, a list of school staff, and a nutrition report. (LMI)
