* Sri Lanka government to examine tuition classes
Sat, Dec 29, 2012, 10:32 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Dec 29, Colombo: Sri Lanka Minister of Higher Education S.B. Dissanayaka says that a special island wide study will be carried out next year on the status of tuition classes.

The study will specially focus on the spreading tuition trend which is a big business and reportedly low in educational standards .

Many of these classes are overcrowded and lack facilities. Most of them do not have basic facilities like proper seating and clean floors.

The tuition classes, which supposedly provide additional instructions on subjects in school curricula, do not follow any modern educational principle and they are highly teacher centered with one teacher lecturing to hundreds of students.

The Minister said that complaints have been received on extortions and child abuse as well.

The Ministry sources say the government is going to compile a set of guidelines for the tuition classes.
