* Education sector trade union in Sri Lanka criticizes the addition of another ministry for education
Tue, Jan 29, 2013, 09:46 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 29, Colombo: Education sector trade unions in Sri Lanka have criticized the government's move to add another ministry to the sector.

President Mahinda Rajapaksa introduced a new Educational Services Ministry at yesterday's Cabinet reshuffle.

The Ceylon Teachers Union (CTU) says that the new Educational Services Ministry would be of no use except to utilize funds that would otherwise be allocated for the free education in the country.

CTU General Secretary, Joseph Stalin has said that now another minister would be maintained by the monies that should be spent on the country's student population.

He has observed that the highest number of bribery complaints last year had been against personnel in the education sector.

According to Stalin, even with so many ministers, deputy ministers and a supervising MP the authorities still muddle national level examinations.
