[TamilNet, Wednesday, 05 February 2003, 03:42 GMT]
In Mullaitivu district, five schools have not been functioning from 1990, and only 50% of the teacher vacancies have been filled placing the educational welfare of children in the district in an unacceptable state, educational sources in Mullaitivu said.

Schools in Kokilai, Nai Aru, Thaneer Ootu Muslim Vidyalayam, Mullaitivu Muslim Vidyalayam and Unnpilavu school have not been functioning for more than ten years, sources said.

Mullaitivu district which has a student population of 18,926 is required to have a teaching staff of 1176 teachers. Educational sources say only 587 teachers have been handling the work load, and furthermore, among this group 241 are volunteer teachers and 42 are part-time teachers placing the school children at a serious disadvantage in getting good quality education.
