Government doctors today called on the Education Ministry to amend a circular for Grade One admissions for their children to allow them to attend good schools or warned that the country would lose its doctors since they would look for more lucrative opportunities overseas where better benefits could be found.

Government Medical Officers Association (GMOA) President Anuruddha Padeniya said the Education Ministry circular stipulates that it is mandatory for those who wish to admit their children to Grade One should reside in the area that the school is located in for a period of five years.

    It's true that the present rules for school admission are ridiculous when you think about employees who have to move from place to place in the country. But this is almost the same for almost everyone who is employed in public & private sector.

    But these doctors seems to think they are more privileged than the rest. Please if you don't like being in this country just leave. there are 1000 medical students passing out each year from SL unis

    No other group of professionals are as brazen as these doctors in blackmailing the society.
