PORT MORESBY - We should denounce knowledge-based education and concentrate on skills-based education.
Let us not judge our children by their ability to memorise and regurgitate information, let us assess them for being innovative.
Let them do it in Pidgin too. Speaking fluent English does not put food on the table, entrepreneurship does - money does not speak just one language.
We are an intelligent people. Our ancestors learnt by observation. Nothing has changed in our psyche.
Why do we herd our children like cows in a field when we can tailor our education system to one of apprenticeship?
Let us not blame our children. The system designed by outsiders is not good for us.
Leadership is about making decisions that favour us and not us playing, ‘yes master’, to outside ideas and standards.
