Fri, Dec 7, 2012, 12:09 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Dec 07, Colombo: Teacher trade unions in Sri Lanka say that teacher transfers in the Eastern Province are politicized.

The Ceylon Teachers' Union (CTU) says that transfers requested by many teachers in the province have been ignored.

CTU General Secretary, Joseph Stalin has said that the Batticaloa education zone is the worst affected in this regard. He has explained that many requests made by teachers for transfers have been ignored while transfers have been facilitated to teachers based on their political affiliations.

He has charged that the transfers do not take place through the Teacher Transfer Board in the Eastern Province and that they are carried out in arbitrary manner by the zonal education office.

According to Stalin, the CTU has in writing informed the Eastern province Education Secretary about the irregular transfers that are taking place in the province.
