* Sri Lankan Education Minister challenged to an open debate
Wed, Feb 26, 2014, 06:54 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 26, Colombo: A trade union affiliated to Sri Lanka's education sector has challenged Education Minister Bandula Gunawardena to an open debate.

The Ceylon Teachers' Service Union (CTSU) has challenged Gunawardena to a public debate on the collection of monies from parents for school development work.

CTSU General Secretary, Mahinda Jayasinghe has issued a statement questioning Minister Gunawardena's repeated statements and assurances that schools do not request parents or students to make payments for its maintenance and development work.

He has pointed out that the 2013/07 circular is a direct contradiction of Gunawardena's assurances.

"The circular authorizes the school administration and its community to do whatever necessary to bring in finances for the continuation of the school's maintenance," Jayasinghe has said.
