Dec 06, Colombo: Sri Lanka Minister of Education Bandula Gunawardena said that the government would take steps to introduce a code of ethics for the teachers.

The Minister said the objective of the code of ethics is to create a teacher's role that is dedicated for teaching the students.

He further said that a circular with the code of ethics, rules and regulations would be issued soon.

The national committee appointed by the Ministry for formulating a new Education Bill also highlighted the need for a code of conduct for teachers.
