The Federation of University Teachers Associations (FUTA) today vowed to do everything possible to prevent the private universities bill from proceeding if it is presented to Parliament without consulting all stakeholders in the higher education sector.
 
Higher Education Minister S.B. Dissanayake and other government officials had discussions with FUTA recently where it was unanimously decided that the Ministry, University Grants Commission, university teachers, students and other relevant parties would hold discussions on the matter before the matter before the Quality Assurance, Accreditation and Qualification Frame Bill was brought to parliament.
 
FUTA President Nirmal Dewasiri said during the union’s Annual General Meeting last week it was found that there was a possibility that the bill would be introduced to parliament shortly. “We asked for constitutional amendments to be made and they agreed to it. We see this as a violation of the agreement that was reached last week,” Dewasiri said.
 
“If the reports are true then we will do our best to stop it. We will take maximum action,” he said. Discussions are currently underway between FUTA and Ministry officials on the when the discussions should begin. (Olindhi Jayasundere)

    Z score of 2.1 to 2.3 in biology corresponds to an Island rank of 400 to 600 this can be 200 to 400 according correct method of calculation of z-score. They are placed at 1200 to 1400 due this gross error in calculation, they were given a much lower z score and a correspondent Island rank. Best students were unfairly treated and their human rights violated. This is an unhealthy sign for future of higher education in this nation. Those who come forward to correct this are doing a remarkable service to this nation.
