Tuition Fee Free education program

Govt placed additional 1 mil children in school: PM

This was the message from Prime Minister Peter O’Neill during the ‘2017 Prime Minister’s Back-to-Business Breakfast’ last week.

He said they achieved this by investing over K3.5 billion in direct funding to schools through the Tuition Fee Free education program.

“Today, we have two million children in school – close to half of them are girls,” said the PM.

“We know there have been problems in getting so many children into school in a short period of time.

“This has meant more children are in each class, and student to teacher ratios have increased.
