When the Minister for Education accused a school of being racist when asking for an indigenous Fijian as principal, a very good reply has been published in the Fiji Times. The author shows that ethnicity is a fact and cultural considerations need to be addressed not ignored as irrelevant. And I remember one time a Christian based school was given a Hindu principal because head office in Suva apparently chose the principal, not the school board. It wasn't satisfactory in my opinion. The local people - in the islands, in the countryside - should have a say in their school leaders, not some office men and women in Suva.
