Ms Vethanayakam said CD for Mathematics has already been released on experimental basis in Jaffna district where it has received wide support from parents and students. Parents should encourage their children to learn through CDs. Currently computers and television sets are only used for entertainment purpose in homes. This trend should be changed, she said.

Jaffna district parliamentarian Mr.K.Sivanesan has agreed to release one hundred thousand rupees from his decentralised budget next year for the extension of the project throughout the northeast province, Ms Vethanayakam said.
