Is the PNG economic situation so bad that education quality is being compromised? What has happened to the squeakiless cog-machines in the Department of education not to notice the situation and provide emergency funding? Is there effective communication between the school administration and the head office? Or is the school now the responsibility of the central province or the NCD and if so, how come the NCD, a rich papa, not come to the aid of the school?

In comparision is Gerehu National High, a day school, having problems? Most of our secondary schools are boarding schools . Teachers and administrators must not only prepare for what goes on in the classroom but must become parents also ... taking care of the medical, the housing,and the feeding of students. I guess, as a result, they are probably not focused on giving attention to the learning and teaching aspect of schools and which would obviously have some impact on the educational quality overall, provided by the school. And it doesn't stop there. I think Dr Hill before leaving his job as VC at UPNG also had some comments about the high rate of poor students performing in 1st year English.

So what can we suggest to improve the quality of our outputs from high schools who would become throughputs into our higher education institutions? I think more and more of our schools should become day-schools. Let the teachers focus on teaching and let parents do their job to feed and house their children. This may be unrealistic, seeing that many of the students attending our boarding high schools must travel long distances to get to the school and roads are so atrocious. I remember however, that some top-up schools in my province were providing school buses to get students from some kilometers away from school, I wonder whether that would not work for more high schools in the country.

The question of females travelling to and from school is also a consideration. But then again, there are gang rapes of female students also in boarding schools as happened somewhere in one of the highlands provinces.

What you you folks think?
