Tuition-Free Policy To Improve Quality Learning

The commodity component of the tuition fee free education policy for the Highlands region was launched in Mendi today by Education Minister Nick Kuman.

The commodity component is an initiative of the national government to improve quality of learning by supplying each student in every school with an education kit that comprises basic materials and stationaries required by students and teachers.

 

Treid Pacific won the contract to implement this component of the tuition-free policy and the launching today marks the start of the trial distribution of student education kits to all schools in the province.

 

Minister Kuman announced that Southern Highlands will receive the full cash component of the tuition fee free policy from the Education Department and manage it on their own

 

However, he stressed the importance of doing audits and using the money for its’ intended purpose.

 

He said the standard breakup of the cash component set by the department is for 30% to be used for administration costs, 30% for basic curriculum resources and the balance to support school maintenance and other school infrastructure.
