The Education Ministry requested all school administrations to proceed with the current teacher transfer programme with immediate effect.

A letter in this regard was issued yesterday (11) to all school principals.

According to the transfer orders issued under the 2022 annual and ten-year transfers, the Ministry Secretary said the transferred teachers were reportedly not released from their services and transferred teachers were not given the opportunity to report for their duties.

"This is an illegal act. According to the transfer orders issued to all principals they should make arrangements for the immediate release of the transferred teachers from their schools," the Ministry Secretary said.

Immediate arrangements should be made to hand over duties to the teachers who report for duty at their schools, he said.

After making the above arrangements, the Secretary requested all principals to report the details to him within three days. (Chaturanga Pradeep Samarawickrama)

    some school principals do not treat their teachers well .be honest that some of these principals when they sit in the chair of principals they get some proud and some are arrogant making teachers to bow down to them or beg them to get a transfers or get some sick leaves ..the ministry of education must monitor all these unprofessional school principals. Some misuse their power to exploit week teachers ..some time they don't fulfill their official responsibility...I don't why ? May be they are not well trained yet to become principals or they are appointed by political influence...just passing written examination for principal is not always enough to work as principals in schools ...their attitudes ; manners ; behaviours ; interpersonal skills and intercultural knowledge skills must be examined too and suitability for the post of school principals must be through examed. Ministry of education must have power to fire any school principals who misbehave in schools
