Dec 06, Colombo: Education Minister of Sri Lanka Bandula Gunawardena says the government's investment promotion agency, Board of Investment (BoI) will not entertain registration of new private schools in future.
Gunawardena told parliament that the BoI has stopped registering any more private schools in the country.
The Minister made this comment in response to a question posed by United National Party (UNP) parliamentarian Akila Viraj Kariyawasam.
Kariyawasam said that there were questions over the standards of education in some private and international schools and that there are many such schools operating in the country.
However, Gunawardena assured that there will not be any new private or international schools in the country since the BoI has stopped registering them.
