Distance Education and Research Centre
Although Distance Education would seem a natural need, service to provide in Tonga, the poor transportation/communications systems available to most Tongans has limited the availability of Distance Education Services. In partial response the Ministry of Education instituted (with external funding) the Distance Education and Research Centre at Pahu.
Unfortunately there has been little development in the "Distance Education" program. The Centre has largely been used as a technology centre for the training in computing courses and Vocational Training.
