MORE than 4600 teachers in the highlands region are still waiting for their postings, an official says.
The delay in the postings was caused by the provincial education board whose term expired last year.
General secretary of the PNG Teachers Association in the highlands region John Melson said the old board’s term had expired.
No new board had been appointed to decide on the postings.
He said the provincial executive council was to appoint a new education board.
He said teacher postings should have been done when teachers were still on holidays.
“My office is concerned about the welfare and education of students and will talk to the Governor and provincial administrator to sort out the problem quickly,” he said.
