This was a very nice posting. Thank you.

Look, why do we focus still on giving our kids western education? Obviously because we want to compete with the western world. But we'll never be able to do it and we'll never be able to catch up. Look it will take easily more than 100 years before we are even close to catching up with the western world. As you say our education levels are dropping. How do we raise them again? We won't bring in expats again that's for certain and besides, no one will send in the number we need.

I fear that our entire education system is based upon the impossible goal of catching up with the west. They will always end up ahead of us, we will always be playing their game, and thus they will always win.

There will always be a few Papua New Guinean exceptions. Papua New Guineans who can play the game of the west and win. Fine but where does that leave the other 99%+ ????
