Hi Richard, I gues you are one close technical adviser or so ,because it all falls your way and the gossips I have heard in the streets of POM, some of your reasons outlined were mentioned. So who ever Richard you are, please tell our Ipatas to reconsider the old system. The top 5% and poor can be fully subsidised but for us the others, the old system is of great help.

Up to you Richard!!

**********************************
Subsidies only for top 5% and poor Engans

WITH school fee subsidy now scrapped in Enga, only the top performing students will continue to enjoy this benefit from the provincial government under a new scheme announced by Governor Peter Ipatas.
He said only Enga’s under-privileged children including orphans and the top 5% of students will continue to receive education subsidies.
Governor Ipatas said the focus now was to provide quality education including the recruitment of overseas teachers, computer labs for schools and libraries.
He also appealed to the Enga people not to touch properties during tribal fights which would now be the main focus of the province.
“Tribal fights are not new and because of inaction by police, we have lost schools. Now we have a new police management team including a new provincial police commander and station commander, we will focus our attention on law and order.”
He explained that Enga had spent K68 million in the last 10 years for education subsidies because Porgera Joint Venture came on stream and there was a lot of money to be shared by people.
Mr Ipatas said there was not much opportunity and with the pyrethrum and coffee factories now in place, it was time parents work the land to educate their children.
He would consider school fee subsidies in later years.
