Don't be deluded with the notion that institutions make people clever or bright. The gift of being a clever/bright student is a result of personal nurturing. We have dumb kids from rich families attending the most expensive schools and they will not progress in a positive way to be independent because their future is well secured - they have the money to buy their way here and their.
Over the years children from ordinary/poor families have excelled in their education in PNG INSTITUTIONS over the years and they are now working as professionals in their respective fields in all corners of this planet so that's something foreigners need to take into account when they write their sorry *** polemics about PNG education.
