Lae’s Flexible Open Distance Education Centre Ignored

The Flexible Open Distance Education Centre in Lae, is facing difficulties such as overcrowding of students, infrastructure and lack of teaching and learning materials.

The school is located in the heart of Lae town and has over 700 students.

Centre Supervisor, Nicky Raka, says students and teachers are currently using buildings made from bush materials to teach and learn.

This FODE Centre in Lae has increased with student enrolment since the roll out of the program in 2014.

It is facing many difficulties, including overcrowding of students and inadequate space.

The Centre Supervisor, Nicky Raka, says the Provincial Education Division assisted with K39,000 last year to help solve few of the problems.

The institution offers a second opportunity for school leavers.

Last year, 21 students from this FODE Centre were given a second chance to education in few Secondary schools in Morobe Province.

The grade 11 students recently switched to Electronic Learning to avoid problems faced with lack of curriculum materials.

Flexible Open Distance Education is also included in the Government’s Free Education Policy.

However, the Centre Supervisor said the school has not received any funds from the National and Provincial Government.
