Higher Education Minister S.B Dissanayake said today that the government was prepared to make amendments to the Universities Act of 1978 to expand and develop local universities to be on par with other internationally recognised institutes.
Minister Dissanayake said despite negative reports about local universities and the government’s role in education reforms amidst the ongoing university strike, the government had a clear vision to further develop the education system and that plans were already underway. (Olindhi Jayasundere)
Giving longstanding respectable Institutes like NIBM and SLIIT would ease the pressure on local universities and these Institutes are long standing respectable establishments with international standing !!!

That is because lack of funds to promote any post graduate research programs. That is why FUTA is fighting for - at least to maintain existing levels. With current set of rulers we will never get it into top 400. Even we will not be able to get into top 100 Unis' in Asia

First step should be to cut SB's privileges like vehicles, etc and use the money saved in the education system.

Most of the top universities of the world get state and private funding for research and more importantly development. In Sri Lanka it is not the case. This is the reason why most graduates are misfits in the job market.

Clear vision, what it is? All this time, didn't you have clear vision, There is no vision or mission in the education system in Sri Lanka, until the present Govt appoint proper ministers, withnproperveducation and dignity, if you give education ministry to low calibre politician, the entire education system in the country will suffer and the future of our children will be ruined forever.

All youths are educated in Universities, vocational training institutes, private universities, IT Institutions , International schools and so on - No employments available with the trend- in time to come no one is found even to pluck coconuts. Take India as an example Not much education facilities for locals but food production is high.
