FSM Education Reports On The Education Indicators
This is the FSM Indicators Report for the school year 2019-20, which first started in

tools we have deployed. While our teacher attrition needs to be improved qualified
teachers have a higher tendency to remain in the education system.
Due to the coronavirus, there was no NMCT exams this here and therefore no related
data is included in this publication.
