Marine Technology teacher shortage in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Saturday, 18 September 2004, 03:49 GMT]
The Association of Marine Technology Teachers in Jaffna district Friday requested Jaffna district parliamentarians to take immediate steps to appoint more teachers in the North-East schools to teach subjects related to marine technology, Jaffna district secretariat sources said.

A delegation of the association Friday handed a memorandum to parliamentarians who were present in Jaffna district secretariat attending the Jaffna District Co-ordinating Committee (JDCC).

Parliamentarian Mr. Mavai Senathirajah presided over the meeting. Parliamentarians Messrs K.Sivanesan, M.K.Sivajilingam, M.K.Eelaventhan, Suresh Premachcndran and N.Raviraj and the Government Agent Mr.S.Pathmanathan attended the meeting.

About 200 persons have passed out as Diploma holders in subjects related to marine technology. Of them about fifty have been appointed as teachers in 69 schools in the districts of Jaffna, Killinochchi, Mullaitivu, Mannar and Vavuniya to teach subjects in marine technology.

More than seven hundred students have obtained good passes in these subjects at the last GCE Ordinary Level examination, the memorandum pointed out.

"More students are now showing increased levels of interest to learn marine technology related subjects in their schools in the northeast province. They are unable to pursue their chosen line of study because of shortage of teachers," the memorandum states.
