Modernised Tokelau schools seeing results

From , 5:03 am on 24 May 2017

An education expert from New Zealand says Tokelau children's language and maths skills are improving after a change in teaching style on the atolls.

New Zealand education authorities have been working with Tokelau to shift its schools away from 1960s style learning to more collaborative methods.

There's a school of about 130 students on each of Tokelau's three atolls and Diane Leggett from the Institute of Education has been visiting them since the project began in 2014.
