Education in Kiribati is free and compulsory from age 6 to 14, which includes primary school through grade six, and Junior Secondary School for three additional grade levels.[1] In 1998, the gross primary enrollment rate was 84.4 percent, and net primary enrollment rate was 70.7 percent.[1] School quality and access to education are better in urban areas; schools in small communities on isolated islands are expensive to maintain.[1]
