The Embilipitiya National School was closed today after teachers boycotted classes and took to the streets to protest against the assault on the school principal by a group of parents recently.

The school principal was assaulted last Friday by the parents over the failure to admit students to year one, some of the protesting teachers said adding that the principal was assaulted while police officers stood nearby.

The protestors claimed that while a few parents involved in the assault were arrested many others still remain at large. (Daily Mirror online)

    Everyone seems to think that they can take the law into their hands as the 'police' are completely dysfunctional. What a pathetic scenario.

    Well, these are the people who voted in the government. They cant even streamline a system for admission of student. Let's hope "iskolaya" can solve the problem. There certainly seems some racket, as we see so many school vans coming from far away, transporting children to Colombo schools. A check should be made even after the children are admitted to school to check whether the parents are in fact living within the 2 miles radius.

    All these is because we do not have a proper policy to admit students to grade .
    Due to this lots of political intervention and the principals are puppets to these politicians.
    Can new minister introduce a new policy soon at least before 2011 admission?

    This is not a parents bad habbit. They did what they think as correct. Most of schools, principal as well as powerful teachers get bribes to admit students.

    The parents are setting a great example! This is a sign of utter desperation only to be exacerbated by the country's miserable economic situation which is rapidly declining.
    There is no place for decency.
