Abstract: The concept of education in the Marshall Islands is constantly being redefined according to the cultural, social and political forces acting upon it. A variety of hurdles exists to codifying a socially relevant and contextualised approach to training teachers in the country. It is incumbent upon teacher trainers to develop valid approaches to contextualizing education working towards the creation of a qualified pool of professional Marshallese educators and the adoption of realistic and appropriate education standards.
