Sri Lanka Teachers’ Association today signed a petition against the circular which states that all the expenses of schools except the salaries of the teachers should be accounted on the parents. The parents who were victimized by the rule further stated that the circular has made it impossible for their children to enjoy the right of free education. Pics by Nisal Baduge

    dev Tuesday, 25 January 2011 08:01 AM

    MOVE ON PEOPLE, these sri lankans are too quiet in front of GOVT, fight for rights !!

    Yehiya-Doha Tuesday, 25 January 2011 11:25 AM

    Where free education. Even some colombo schools ask to wear some branded shoes & school bags. Principals are most culprits.

    So maintenance of schools is also a burden on parents now?What about text books?Furnitures etc? all are going to be on parent's account? All except salary means this right! But millions worth luxury vehicles are all free for Ministers and MP at poor people's tax money.

    kalakanniya Tuesday, 25 January 2011 07:11 AM

    never never never never
    we are not ready to spend anything on my childrens education. all we need free of charge.

    jayampathi Tuesday, 25 January 2011 07:25 AM

    are we selling free education also?

    dhiga Tuesday, 25 January 2011 07:34 AM

    Any thing given free has no value.

    Prag Tuesday, 25 January 2011 07:39 AM

    What is this crazy!!! no free education in SL?

    Kaputa Tuesday, 25 January 2011 07:48 AM

    THIS IS FIRST STEPS TOWARDS PRIVATIZATION OF EDUCATION.

    Roshan Wednesday, 26 January 2011 03:14 AM

    I have a point !!!

    What if we stop free education & Privatize all.
    Identify the poor students & Government will pay for their education.

    This way, we may save a lot of money, even the people know that they pay for their studies so they will not playful.
    Since it is privatized, teachers & teaching will be very effective...

    What do you all say !!!
