Parents Must Ensure Children are in School

Prime Minister Peter O’Neill made mention of the plans when asked about the issue of the growing number of street children in urban areas despite the free education policy.

“In 2018 onwards, we are going to make education compulsory so that we don’t have kids hanging around on the streets and not going to school.”

“It is the parents’ responsibility in making sure that their kids are in school, and these kids need an opportunity in their life to get educated and have a better standard of living.”
