Abstract: There is an urgent need to reform the education system to achieve universal primary education in Papua New Guinea (PNG). Even 35 years after independence, Papua New Guinea is still trying to educate about 2 million children of primary school and primary school age, and faces many challenges in universal education. The study was conducted in four primary schools in buma Yong area, Lae District, Morobe Province, Papua New Guinea. Research shows that the quality of education has been declining over the past few decades. Many schools in Papua New Guinea do not have classrooms, teachers and infrastructure. As a result, the children lost interest in school. These children drop out of school to help their families engage in family and agricultural activities. It also revealshat the dropout rate of girls is more than that of the boys due to the gender disparity in the country. The study recommended that budgetary allocations should be increased so as to improve the infrastructural facilities and encourage the children to attend primary school and thus achieve the Millennium Development Goal Education For All in PNG.
