Thu, Nov 8, 2012, 12:08 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Nov 08, Colombo: A teacher trade union in Sri Lanka has opposed the appointment of several principals in schools in the Western Province.

The Ceylon Teachers’ Union (CTU) states that the appointment of acting principals as permanent principals in Western Province is irregular.

CTU General Secretary, Joseph Stalin has issued a statement saying that acting principals are being made permanent on a regular basis in the Western Province sidelining a number of suitably qualified principals.

He notes that the appointment of unsuitable persons to posts of principals has resulted in the sidelining of qualified individuals.

He explained that some qualified individuals are unable to serve as principals in schools in the Western Province since vacancies have been filled by acting principals.

According to Stalin, teachers and principals in the country opposed the appointment of acting principals as principals without following the proper procedure.
