Gore On Higher Education Policies

Share the News
The Higher Education Minister, Delilah Gore, who was in Lae today said education policies in the country have let students down.

Minister Gore’s comment comes in response to a high rate of school leavers, leaving school without finding jobs.

She says the commission of higher education will revisit old education policies to create new policies to address problems such as the high number of school dropouts.
 
The forum hosted by the Commission for Higher Education today, at 10 mile just outside of Lae, brought together a group of thinkers.

They gathered as part of their annual event to discuss issues affecting tertiary institutions in the country.

Present amongst the group was the Higher Education Minister, Delilah Gore.

Thoughts put together in the meeting will go a long way in what is to become the next fundamental step in achieving quality education in PNG’s tertiary education system.

Over the last two decades, blame has been leveled against the outcome-based Education system that left many students producing poor results.

The reform in the early 1990’s was meant to allow more students to go to school.

The result produced by the students at the end of grade ten and twelve, however, don’t appear to be compelling enough to secure them a space in tertiary institutions.

The Higher Education Minister says that old ways used by the education system in the country have ceased to work and that the education system has to come up with new ways to face the future problems in the education sector.
