Discrimination continues in teachers appointment in East

[TamilNet, Friday, 03 June 2011, 12:55 GMT]
A group of councilors in the Eastern Provincial Council (EPC), which already collaborates with Colombo have given a memorandum to the SL President Mahinda Rajapaksa complaining about the discrimination shown in the appointment of teachers to ‘national’ and provincial schools disregarding qualified Tamil medium teachers. P. Piyasena, a parliamentarian from Ampaa'rai elected on TNA ticket and later crossed over to the ruling UPFA and the EPC members S.Pushparajah and S.Selvarajah have signed the memorandum.

The memorandum charged that 90% of the teachers’ appointment to ‘national’ schools is from Sinhala medium.

Some of the Sinhala teachers have even failed to obtain required cut out marks for such appointment. But, Tamil medium teachers who have obtained required cut out marks have been disregarded.

Meanwhile the Provincial Director of Education for the eastern province Mr.M.T.A.Nizam said that excess teachers are working in schools in his province.

However, provincial education authorities under him, have declined to comment on the allegation that Tamil medium teachers who are qualified for appointment in ‘national’ schools are posted to provincial schools.
