Prepare children for the transition to primary school to Secondary

The Free Compulsory Public Elementary and Free Public Secondary Education Act of 1997 is a law in the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), specifically in the State of Chuuk. This law requires the FSM government to provide free and mandatory public elementary education and free public secondary education in Chuuk, as required by statute.

The law also requires the state government to establish, manage, and support a statewide system of public schools that will provide a quality and relevant education to all residents of Chuuk. The education provided should be free from any sectarian control, meaning that no religious group should have any influence over the content or administration of the education system.

Furthermore, the law emphasizes that education should be available to all persons in Chuuk, regardless of their background, economic status, or other factors. This means that the education system should be inclusive and provide equal opportunities to all students.

Overall, this law underscores the importance of education as a fundamental right and as a means to promote individual and societal development. By providing free and accessible education, the FSM government seeks to empower its citizens and build a more prosperous and equitable society.
