Mon, Jan 7, 2013, 11:01 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 07, Colombo: Sri Lanka Ministry of Education has decided to stop establishing single-gender schools in the future.

The Minister of Education Bandula Gunawardena said that out of the 9,830 public schools in the island only 339 are gender separated.

However, most of the leading schools in almost all the cities in Sri Lanka are gender separated.

The Minister pointed out that a boys' school and a girls' school situated close to the Nugawela Central College in Kandy district were affiliated to the Central College recently by the Ministry.

Youth Affairs and Skills Development Minister Dullas Alahapperuma also recently pointed out that the division of schools as Buddhist, Muslim, Tamil, Hindu, Catholic, and Sinhala, as well as Girls' and Boys' have created a type of separatism.
