THE Education Department has rejected a request from the Enga provincial government to manage its component of the tuition fees under the free education policy.
Governor Peter Ipatas followed up on that request with Acting Education Minister James Marape in parliament last Friday.
Ipatas said the minister had told the House earlier this year that Enga would be one of the provinces that would manage its tuition fees.
Marape confirmed getting that request and said he gave directions to the Education Department to process the request but it was rejected.
He told the House that the purpose of Ipatas’s request was in the context of having the capacity to manage the funds.
Marape said Enga was one of the provinces that had done well in education but since the request was a first of its kind, there was resistance from the department because the policy was being implemented in Waigani.
