Talking to Ononge Head teacher, he said Kambisea is not operating. Only Kulama and Visi. Kulama has 4 volunteer teachers, as well as Visi with 4.
Guari LLG has only 2 schools operating [Jude Taiari Ameua Siperi] in Guarimeipa and Ataipo Primary schools. Not much information is available for these schools. Rupila and Omu Primary schools are closed.
Kerau & Tavuniav primary schools are also operating. But I was not able to get to the respective teachers for information. Kileipi is closed. Lolope is closed. Duffey is closed.
This is the reality on the ground in Goilala. Yet we have GoPNG under PNC beating their chest yelling praises for the FREE Education.
What is the stand of the Provincial Education board in regards to this? Is it legal or illegal to have volunteer teachers teaching students? Can the Education department be sued by parents of students been taught by volunteer teachers?
How about compensating the volunteer teachers? Or can we send these volunteer teachers for more studies? And what happens to those Teachers college graduate but lazy incompetent registered Teachers?
Reality bites hard but is it the student’s fault? Is it also the parent’s fault that the registered teachers aren’t adequate to cater for large student numbers?
