Kuman: OBE System To Exit Come 2015

The controversial Outcome Based Education System will be done away come 2015.

The education structural reform that began in 1992, and the education curriculum reform, paved the way for the Outcome Based Education system (OBE) to be approved for use in 2000.


Since taking office in 2012, O’Neill-Dion Government has backed calls for a more effective Education System in the country.


Prime Minister, Peter O&rsquO’Neill said PNG will do away with the Outcome Based Education System by January.


The announcement of OBE exit in 2015 was made by Education Minister, Nick Kuman, in Port Moresby yesterday, during the opening of Koiari Park Adventist Secondary School.


Education Minister, Nick Kuman mentioned the exit of the OBE system yesterday at the official opening of the Koairi Park Adventist Secondary School in Port Moresby.


Mr Kuman said that the National Government will introduce basic skills standard education across all schools from elementary to secondary, to replace the OBE system in 2015.


Minister Kuman said that the replacement education system will realize its full potential, and to be fully utilized over a period of five years beginning in 2015.


He also said the National Government has approved and will focus more on the use of ICT in schools across the country, to improve the level of education in the country come 2015.


He said that most secondary schools have received ICT funds, and they will now focus on primary schools across the country.
