Tue, Mar 25, 2014, 10:17 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Mar 25, Colombo: A trade union affiliated to Sri Lanka's education sector plans to discuss issues faced by the teachers in the Northern Province with the Chief Minister of the Province.

The Ceylon Teachers' Union (CTU) has said the union will discuss administrative issues in the provincial education sector with Northern Province Chief Minister C.V. Vigneswaran.

CTU General Secretary Joseph Stalin has said there are many problems related to teacher and principal transfers, promotions and lack of facilities in schools in the Northern Province.

Stalin explained to the media that while most issues have been addressed many times, a suitable action was never taken.

He noted that there are schools in the Vavuniya, Mullaitivu, Kilinochchi and Madu Educational Zones that lack even the basic facilities.

The CTU has stated that it has already held a discussion of the problems in the education sector in the North with Provincial Education Minister T. Kurukularasa, but there was no positive outcome.

The union has therefore decided to discuss the issues with the Northern Province Chief Minister.
