Secondary Schools in PNG to be transferred under Higher Education

Plans are underway to have all the powers of secondary schools throughout the country transferred to the Department of Higher Education Research Science and Technology.
They currently come under the Department of Education.
Acting Secretary of Department of Higher Education Research Science and Technology Father Jan Czuba told NBC News, this is part of the department's plans for the future.
"The full idea is to make sure that we maintain the quality of education.
"We are very much concerned that the high education sector cannot perform well if the primary and secondary are not doing well.
"We would like to implement a NEC decision of 1995.
"Teachers are very important in primary schools, but teachers coming from our colleges, the quality of education is lower and lower.
"We would like to implement new curriculum for teachers in teachers' colleges, and we would like to focus too on centres of excellence in different provinces and regions.
"This will help them improve the curriculum, rehabilitate the current infrastructure and improve the learning and teaching environment," Fr Jan said.
