Shortage of English language teachers in NE

[TamilNet, Monday, 08 September 2003, 19:52 GMT]
The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) has requested Sri Lanka’s Prime Minister, Mr. Ranil Wickremesinghe, to take steps to fill the vacancies that exist for English language teachers in Northeast schools by granting permanent appointments to part time English teachers who have been working in the region for several years, sources said.

The TNA delegation, at its meeting with Mr. Wickremasinghe Monday at his Temple Trees residence, brought to his notice the fasting protest by the North-East Part Time English Teachers, who have demanded permanency, and said their demand was just as there was a dearth of English teachers in the Northeast provincial schools.

The delegation said that in particular, there is an acute shortage for English teachers in schools in Kilinochchi, Mullaitivu, Thunukkai and Mutur.

The North East Part Time English Teachers Union suspended its four-day-old fasting campaign last Thursday on the assurance by TNA parliamentarians and provincial education ministry secretary that they would take up the matter with the Prime Minister.
