Thu, Dec 13, 2012, 08:09 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Dec 13, Colombo: Trade unions affiliated to Sri Lanka's education sector say that there are vacancies for principals in over 100 national schools.

The Ceylon Teachers' Union (CTU) has said that 103 out of the 355 national schools in the country had vacancies for principals.

General Secretary of the CTU, Joseph Stalin has said the Education Ministry has failed to appoint principals to fill the vacancies and the Ministry had appointed acting principals instead of filling the vacancies.

He has noted that the Education Ministry has turned down the names proposed by Public Services Commission to fill the vaccines.

According to Stalin, the vacancies are being maintained to fill the positions with persons with political affiliations.

The CTU says the government should fill the vacancies at least by the beginning of the next school term in January.

Meanwhile, the Education Ministry of the Western Provincial Council is having a severe shortage of qualified principals to administer almost half of the Province's schools, The Island reported.

There are only 1,008 qualified school principals for the Province's 1,938 schools while the other 930 schools are run by acting principals.
