Education in Papua New Guinea
Recently the Government has acknowledged the desperate need for help in educating their children and have asked churches and other organisations to help provide schooling.
A lack of access to education leaves the children disadvantaged with few opportunities and options for their future in an ever changing country. This lack of education is self-perpetuating and nation destroying.
Teacher training is also a major issue with many teachers under qualified or holding no qualifications at all. A substantial percentate of teachers have not fully completed their own secondary schooling. This lack of training is a major impediment to the educative process of the next generation of leaders in Papua New Guinea.
