Administration, Finance, & Educational Research
Government schools cover 51 percent of all available schools in the Maldives whereas increasing efforts at partnership result in the community (40 percent) and the private sector (9 percent) carrying the rest. Education has been a steadily rising cost to the public and is well over 15 percent of the total budgetary expenditure. Limited resources have restricted large-scale investment in educational technologies that would allow the use of the Internet and the development of distance-learning on a large scale. At the same time discussion on curriculum reform at the secondary school level to provide students with computer literacy and the possibility of technologically oriented careers is ongoing.
