The New Zealand Government has committed an extra $15 million to Tonga for education.
The grant is part of a joint commitment for development agreement signed by the Foreign Affairs Minister Murray McCully and Tonga's acting Prime Minister Samiu Vaipulu in Nuku'alofa on Wednesday, Radio New Zealand International reports.
Education Minister Ana Taufe'ulungaki says the five-year grant will be used for teacher training, reform of the curriculum, new programmes including early childhood, and policy development.
Mr McCully says annual assessments will measure the impact on children's learning.
