EDUCATION IN GOILALA IS NOT AGENCY, DISTRICT OR DIVISION.
Directly quoting Father Brian Cahill – word for word…”The problem with education in Goilala is the “problem in service delivery in most rural districts in PNG.
In this, Goilala does not stand alone. Teacher shortage, lack of road / air transport for movement of teachers and materials, politicization of the education system with TFF policy and such.
These are factors beyond the Agency, Division, or the District. They are systemic problems. The Catholic Bishops are fully aware of this and are to make a statement soon.”
All along i used to think the cause of education decay and rotting in Goilala was directly the result of Catholic Church agency, and Goilala District’s education division, Central Province Education board and even Goilala District political leadership and Administration.
But seeing that Father Brian Cahill has directly attributed the chaotic status and malfunctioning situation of education system in Goilala to be “SYSTEMATIC PROBLEMS”, I’d like to raise this question without notice to Father Brian Cahill and any one in the know to, in layman’s terms, elaborate that.
What is “SYSTEMATIC PROBLEMS?
Why has this SYSTEMATIC PROBLEMS unattended to for this long?
Whose responsible for righting this SYSTEMATIC PROBLEMS?
Does the Agency has a role to play in righting this Systematic Problem?
Does the Provincial Education Board [Central Province] has something to do to rectify this problem?
How does the District’s political heads, District Administrative body, and the Teachers teaching in Goilala help rectify this SYSTEMATIC PROBLEMS?
SYSTEMATIC PROBLEMS, now that its been confirmed by a reliable source, to be the primary factor contributing to the current state of education in Goilala, can all parties organize and prepare a submission for the National Education Department and eventually the Education Minister?
A problem has got to be solved. A problem can not be nurtured to remain unsolved and expand into something big. Once a problem is identified, it has to be solved.
How come we know there is a “SYSTEMATIC PROBLEM” in place causing all these problems in Goilala Education system and yet we aren’t doing much to help resolve it?
