Apr 13, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Ministry of Education has drawn up plans to abolish the Education Division Offices and instead increase the number of Zonal Education Offices.

Accordingly, Minister of Education, Akila Viraj Kariyawasam said that the number of Zonal Education Offices will be increased from 98 to between 150 and 200, the state-run TV news service reported.

The Minister said administrative issues have surfaced due to the extent of the authority areas and the Education Ministry has decided to get all information via the Provincial Departments to increase the Zonal Offices from 98 to between 150 and 200 with the main purpose of strengthening the administrative structure and also to abolish the Divisional Offices.

The government expects to properly implement the accountability and responsibilities in a perfect manner.

Minister Akila Viraj Kariyawasam said it has been agreed to give priority to children of disabled and physically weak war heroes when granting Grade One admissions to schools and he has already issued instructions to officials of the Committee formulating the circular for next year's Grade One admissions.

The Minister said that they expect to change the quota for grade one admissions giving priority to children of disabled war veterans.
