Trade unions allege politically motivated teacher transfer scheme in East

[TamilNet, Monday, 18 April 2011, 08:57 GMT]
Teachers from the eastern province are being transferred contrary to the islandwide transfer policy but according to a political agenda of the Colombo government, the All Ceylon Teachers Union (ACTU) and All Ceylon Government Workers Union (ACGWU) have alleged. ACTU President Joseph Stalin said transfer of teachers in the eastern and western provinces are carried out according to the Mahinda Chinthanaya policy.

ACGWU President S.Loganathan has requested the Sri Lanka’s President Mahinda Rajapaksa to take immediate steps to stop all transfers of teachers from schools in the eastern province to other provinces.

Mr. Loganathan said such transfers could affect the development of education in the province which is now undergoing acute shortage of teachers.

Teacher shortage in the three districts, Batticaloa, Trincomalee and Ampaa'rai, in the province could be fulfilled by giving appointments to unemployed graduates, volunteer teachers and to those who have completed their training in Colleges of Education.

Meanwhile the Provincial Director of Education M.T.A. Nizam has said that the new transfer scheme is to be implemented from May 1 and the salary of teachers who fail to assumed duties in new stations would be stopped forthwith.
