* Education sector trade union in Sri Lanka to take legal action if teacher transfer policy is not implemented
Thu, Jan 3, 2013, 06:42 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 03, Colombo: An education sector trade union in Sri Lanka says that legal action would be initiated against the Education Ministry if the implementation of the teacher transfer policy is further delayed.

The Ceylon Teachers' Union (CTU) has said the Ministry would be given time till next week to implement the policy.

CTU General Secretary Joseph Stalin has said the failure to implement the policy has resulted in irregular teacher transfers and noted that most of the teacher transfers are politically motivated.

He has explained that teachers who have served in one school for around five years have been transferred when the government has said that teachers who have remained in the same place for 10-20 years would be transferred.

According to Stalin, the Education Ministry has not adhered to the union's demand to implement the teacher transfer policy, which has been made since last year.
