For Pukari, a remote community in Gulf Province, human resource is an issue.
The blame may fall back to Pukari Primary School, but there are many other external contributing factors.
Shedding light and expressing concern was the current headmaster Erevai Toere.
The school has 297 students from grades 3 to 8. There are 80 students in each class, and only 6 teachers to cater for them.
On average, less than 10 students pass on to do Grade 9, either at the Kerema Coronation Secondary School or Malalaua High School.
