MANY parents are struggling to ask wantoks and relatives for school fee assistance for their children this year.
As for working class people such as teachers, nurses, police and other public servants, they are lucky to get bank loans for school fees but that is an extra burden.
Most unemployed parents are having a hard time.
About 90 per cent of students came from poor families and they depends on their garden and other resources.
Many families from rural areas depend on pig, garden or wantoks for assistance.
The 37 per cent components of the school fee causes sicknesses in their brain.
A parent from Wapisale village in Erave, Southern Highlands, recently told me that his son was excepted to study civil engineering at the University of Technology in Lae, Morobe, but was struggling to get funds for school fees.
The parent said he was wondering where to run to for help.
He said he believed in God and that he appreciated what the PNC government had done.
The parent said O’Neill’s government had cleans off the sickness in struggling parent’s brain.
He called former prime minister Peter O’Neill a brain doctor for the poor people of this nation.
The parent said he is not saying that to let Marape down but he express how he felt and what he thought.
Many high schools and secondary schools around the country will close when students start calling for materials, foods and other needs.
More problems will rise and more people will lose their lives once angry parents and students coordinate.
