PNG Morobe province education declining 'for some time'

The education advisor in Papua New Guinea's Morobe says the quality of education in the province has been declining for some time.

Keith Jiram said many schools, classrooms and teachers houses continue to deteriorate, accelerating a decline in quality.

Adding to this, he says, the province has also lost a public library, which contributes to the low quality of education.

Mr Jiram told the Post Courier he is visiting the province's schools and teachers to find out about their problems.

He said he wants to establish new high schools in each of the province's nine local government areas, and wants each district to have a university centre, public library and archives.
