The PNG education system does not equip people adequately for success in life, according to author Tiri Kuimbakul, who’s book Success After Graduation has just been launched by Western Highlands Governor (and former Dave Argent student) Paias Wingti. Kuimbakul says that most of what students are taught in school teaches is irrelevant, schools stifle originality and, while schools educate, they do not impart skills nor teach students how to develop and manage relationships. “Schools have to make themselves relevant to the needs of industry. Teachers have a lot of learning to do because what they know is probably out of date and inappropriate for students of the 21st century.”
