NorthEast teachers to ease Uva shortage

[TamilNet, Friday, 25 February 2000, 06:12 GMT]
Uva Provincial Minister of Tamil Education, Hindu Culture, Estate Infrastructure and Tourism, Mr.M.Sachchithanandam, made an urgent appeal to the North Eastern Provincial Council for help to overcome the acute shortage of Tamil medium graduate school teachers in the Uva province.

In a letter to the Chief Secretary of the North East Provincial Council Mr.G.Krishnamoorthy, Uva Provincial Minister Mr.Sachchithanandam has stated that 290 graduates are needed urgently to fill Tamil medium teacher vacancies in upcountry schools.

Mr.Sachchithanandam has requested the NorthEast Provincial Chief Secretary to send unemployed graduates from northeast province to fill these vacancies on contract basis.

The NorthEast Provincial Chief Secretary has brought this appeal to the notice of the Governor.

In the meantime, unemployed graduates have started sending their applications to NorthEast Chief Secretary expressing their willingness to serve in upcountry schools.

Meanwhile, the NorthEast Provincial Education Ministry has agreed to defer the implementation of school reorganization program until normalcy returns to the war-torn province.

The school reorganization program is now being implemented in the country under the new educational reforms, financed by the World Bank.

The NorthEast provincial ministry of education has also planned to implement the schools reorganization program in the eight districts of the province. The Ceylon Tamil Teachers Union (CTTU) strongly objected to the implementation of school reorganization program in the NorthEast province while the war is going on.

Last week a delegation of the CTTU met the Provincial Director of Education and lodged its protest and requested to defer its implementation until normalcy returned to the province.

Now the Provincial Ministry of Education has agreed to the request of the CTTU, education sources said.
