Slow down on education reform


Education Minister Nick Kuman should not jump the gun by introducing another reform.
He cannot just do away with examinations for grades 8 and 10.
The current system we have is
the best. After introduction of the tuition free education policy there is chaos in the country.
There are increased enrollments at schools throughout the country.
Kuman needs to start talking about improving teacher capacity, conditions and salaries as well as school infrastructure.
There is no need for the current reform to bring every child up to Grade 12 level.
What is most important: quality or quantity?
Do you have the capacity to implement the policy in 2018 as suggested?
The tertiary sector is a bottleneck in PNG at the moment.
Does the minister know about that?
