Students in Fiji's schools will no longer be expelled as the Ministry of Education tries to pass out as many students possible from the education system.

Permanent Secretary for Education, Dr Brij Lal told FijiLive that expulsion was not necessary in schools and this decision does not come with any negativity sign.

“We want all the Fijian children to be educated at least till form 6 and we are doing everything we can in making this initiative a successful one,” Lal said.

"Nevertheless, with rights comes responsibilities and it is the students responsibility to behave in schools and follow all school rules," Lal reiterated.

He said if there comes a need for a student to be expelled from a particular school then the student we will be immediately relocated to another school so he or she can attain and complete high school education.
