    It seems that the crisis in the education sector is a trivial matter for Minister Dissanayake.

    What is the problem of increasing the funds for education? Sri Lanka has enough funds to float loss making mihin lanka, pay for hedging deals, import bad petrol and diesel, have elections separately, import 100s of luxury vehicles for ministers and MPs, host commonwealth games, make cricket grounds all over the place, send jumb delegation abroad, Why not allocate more for state education like other countries?

    I do not think other than political motives to suppress any legitimate action, Minister and the people on the pictures above does not want to take concrete measures to resolve the matter. Allowing this to drag for 3 months shows the government's inability to resolve matters affecting all the communities in the country as well as pleas of the one of the the highly educated sector in the society.

    Exactly correct !!

    SB shouts saying they pay 67k to 150k for lecturers, He doens not have the common sence to know that is just an executive salary of private company employee without a first digree.

    Schools lacks facilities to meet todays education needs.
