Teacher shortage in Vanni schools spotlighted

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 14 March 2006, 09:41 GMT]
Tamil medium schools in the Vanni electorate are in urgent need of trained teachers to teach various subjects, but no action has been taken by the education authorities to post enough teachers to these schools, said Mr.Selvam Adaikalanathan, Wanni district Tamil National Alliance (TNA) in a letter to the Minister of Education.

Mr.Adaikalanathan pointed out to the Minister of Education that about one thousand five hundred teachers have passed out from Colleges of Education with Diploma in Tamil language in December last year. But the education authorities have not taken steps to appoint them to schools in the NorthEast to ease the existing shortage for such teachers.

"Hence I appeal to you to take immediate steps to fill vacancies available in specially in Vanni Tamil medium schools and other areas in the NorthEast with these teachers," appealed Mr. Adaikalanathan with copies of his letter to the Secretary of Ministry of Education, Provincial Governor, Chief Secretary of the North East Provincial Council and Provincial Education Ministry, sources said.
