The Directory of Higher Education Professor David Kavanamur says schools in Papua New Guinea will continue to use the outcome-based education (OBE) system until the Education Department completes rewriting the new curriculum, PNGEdge reports.
When the government made the decision to remove OBE it did not consider that this will take some time.
He says the process to have the OBE curriculum completely removed from schools will take up to three years.
“The national curriculum is being rewritten by the Education Department. Once they complete it, it should complement the teacher training program we are working on,” he says.
Kavanamur says students who graduated in 2012 and 2013 were the first and second lot of students to be certified under the OBE system.
“Students will continue to learn and graduate under this system until this ship is turned around completely,” he says. All examinations will still be conducted in OBE.
Kavanamur says the OBE is an example of a policy put in place without proper studies and advises on its impact on children and the education system.
