EDUCATION SYSTEM NEEDS TO EQUIP STUDENTS: REV. VUNAGI
The Archbishop of the Anglican Church of Melanesia Most Reverend David Vunagi says the country needs an education system that trains and equips students to be innovative and creative.
Speaking during the St Nicholas College end-year graduation in Honiara recently Rev. Vunagi said the present education system only allows students to go through a process of systematic disorientation where the mass will find themselves in limbo.
Solomon Star online reported Rev. Vunagi as saying only a small percentage of students benefited from the current system.
He adds, the mass however find themselves in limbo at the deep end of the stick, which at the end of their school they are helpless, aimless and do not have any sense of purpose in life.
About 80 percent of the country’s population live in rural areas, and depend on sustainable agriculture.
