The Principals’ and teachers’ trade union collective will stage a massive protest rally on Wednesday, at the Liptons Circus, to urge the government to ensure that action is taken against the North Western Provincial Councillor Ananda Sarath Kumara who is alleged to have verbally abused a female teacher and forced her to kneel in the presence of teachers and students.

“The rally will be held based on three main demands. First, to urge the government to ensure that the victimised teacher is safeguarded because she has been threatened and harassed by the councillor's goons; second, to urge the government to pay compensation for the embarrassment that she had to undergo and third to ensure that the education sector is rid of rampant politicisation,” Ceylon Teachers Union (CTU) General secretary Joseph Stalin said.  (LP)

    Good move. We support not because we are against the Government, but we are against Unlawful acts by Politicos and we need to save the Education culture from bad guys.
