Schools that received funding under the Government’s tuition fee free policy this year must provide acquittals to receive the second trench of funding, says acting Education Minister James Marape.
Mr Marape announced in Parliament yesterday that all school headmasters and boards must be advised that the furnishing of acquittals is compulsory and must be complied with to receive further funding from the free education policy.
"We will hold back the second trench fees and release to schools in accordance to them providing their acquittals," Mr Marape announced in Parliament yesterday.
He said the trend of state institutions, including schools, being complacent and failing to furnish acquittals would not be entertained by the O’Neill-Dion government.
"The district education advisors must coordinate all the schools in the district to ensure all school headmasters and the board furnish their acquittals.
"If there is a school headmaster that is quite rogue and is not willing to support with the acquittal process, the district education advisor has all the rights to report this headmaster to authorities higher than him and that is the provincial education advisor as well as the provincial education board.
"The second trench of money under the O’Neill-Dion tuition fee free policy is on standby to roll to all our schools. In fact, the first major expenditure for the last three years of every January has been the free education money and this year we’ve remitted K200 million already to all schools as first trench."
