New Guinea steps up education By MAUREEN JAMIESON Family Editor Margaret Ney "had real when she arrived in New Guinea in September, 1970. Following brief orientation with Canadian University Students Overseas in Quebec, she and her hus- band, George, went to teach at the Martyr's Memorial School, an Anglican high school for boys in the north- ern district in Papua. Following their recent re- turn to Canada, the young couple paid a brief visit to Mrs. Ney's parents, Dr. and Mrs. J. Ray Stewart, before taking up residence in Mc- Bride, B.C. Mrs. Ney was worried about the effect of a sophis- ticated civilization on the primitive people, she explain- ed, "but someone once told me now that we've shown them civilization, we don't have the right to stop them from enjoying it. You can't turn the clock back. "You don't have the right to show them something and say they can't have New Guinea is administer- ed by Australia for the Unit- ed Nations, Mr. Ney said, and "government schools are staffed by Australians paid Australian rates of pay, so volunteers usually go to mission schools. "Even he said, "mis- sions provide most of the ed- ucation. It's really only in the last 10 years the govern- ment has put any effort into educating the people, and that's due to pressure from the United Nations. "The kids are very respon- sive, eager to learn and take school very said Mrs. Ney. as their schooling went until a few years ago when two high schools were established to Grade 12. "The university was open- ed in Mr. Ney added. "There's certainly a feeling in New Guinea that if you get education, the world's yours." A boy with a Grade 10 ed- ncation "is very much in de- he said. "Companies in New Guinea are being pressured to let the local people take over and are training them for executive positions. "After Grade 10. they can go on to technical college, teachers' college or univer- sity, into business, forestry institute or government ad- ministration. More schools needed Students weeded out "When you think of the that some of their fath- ers and grandfathers were grinned Mr. Ney, "you're a bit more cautious than you would be with kids here. "Only 50 per cent of the children get any education at said his wife, "and then there's a weeding-out pro- cess. "Thirty-six per cent of the children who finish primary school get to go to secondary school. No more than 10 per cent of the population gets a high school education." Children start school at the age of seven or older in New Guinea, and at the secondary school where the Neys taught, students ranged from 12 to 25 years. Although there are 700 languages in this country of two million people, "English is the language of instruc- Mrs. Ney pointed out. "So by the tune they came to us they had a fairly good knowledge of it. "The standard of education at Grade 10 is not as high as it is here, chiefly because they've grown up in homes where there is no education, and they've had to learn everything in a foreign lang- uage. "Elementary teachers learn by rote and teach by she said. "They don't have an understanding of concepts. "Our high school went to Grade 10, and that's as far ''There's a real move open to give the good jobs to local Mrs. Ney claimed. "So if they get an education, they can go great places. "There's pressure to build more she said. "People very much want their children to be educated, and when two-thirds of them must return to the village after Grade 6 because there is no room for them in the schools, the parents get very upset. "A boy finds it hard to ad- just to returning to the vil- lage. He has had his horizons broadened, only to have the doors slammed in his face. "In all our said Mrs. Ney, "we went to the villages of our students, be- cause it's easy to forget these sophisticated boys are so close to the primitive in their homes." According to New Guinea culture, "when a child is born, he is raised by the clan, so if the mother dies it makes very little differ- ence. "They have a tremendous sense of security. There are no orphans. A child is rais- ed by the extended family. And if you have no child, a brother might give you one. The children go from one home to another, back and forth "At the end of this Mr. Ney said, "New Guinea will have complete self-gov- ernment. It will be at the stage Canada was in and will control "everything except defence, foreign af- fairs and foreign trade." "When we left, there were Australians and Euro- peans in the public he said, "and by the end of next year, they want it to be half of with local peo- ple taking over. The two most serious pro- blems facing the new govern- ment, according to Mrs. Ney are "how to make the coun- try financially independent and how to make it united. "There's a lot of suspicion bstween highland folk and coastal folk. The highlands is where two-thirds of the peo- ple live, but coastal folk have had most of the education." Mr. Ney neatly condensed the New Guinea situation by saying "one politician des- cribed it as growing years in a lifetime."

ADVISE GOVERNMENT The council would advise the government on matters relating to the status of women. It would have authority to publish its re- ports, recommendations and statements. He promised to introduce a bill adding prohibition of dis- crimination because of sex, age and marital grounds to the Can- ada Labor Cods. A similar bill was introduced in the Commons last year, but died on the order paper. The new bill, to be brought forward in the near future, will be an improved version, specif- ically in the areas of pensions and insurance, he said. Mr. Munro also said Fair Wages and Hours of Work Act regulations were amended so that contractors doing govern- ment work are not able to dis- criminate against a person be- cause of race, national origin, color, religion, age, sex or ma- rital status. winy the grab bag MAUREEN JAMIESON (as in Betty) Pur- ves Of Edmonton drop- ped into town for a brief visit this week to get to know the south.
