450 voluntary teachers in Vanni struggle for permanent appointment
[TamilNet, Monday, 12 July 2010, 10:11 GMT]
Four hundred and fifty volunteer teachers serving in schools in the
districts of Ki'linochchi and Mullaiththeevu are still awaiting
permanency in their posts even after ten years of service under trying
condition, education sources said.
Twenty six diploma holders in marine studies have also been waiting
for permanent appointment since the year 2003.
However, those who
obtained the same Diploma recently have been made permanent due to the
intervention of a Tamil political party which is supportive of the
ruling United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA) government.
