Childhood Snatched Away By An Education System

Dec 11, 2010 8:44:38 AM - thesundayleader.lk

Education Minister Bandula Gunawardena has blamed the current education system in the country for stealing the childhood of innocent children.

Gunawardena addressing a gathering at the Folk Art Center has said that the education system, which is based on examinations being carried out in school has resulted in children losing out on their precious childhood.

He has said that parents and politicians had to be blamed for the situation, especially since children did not have the time to be engaged in creative work.

Gunawardena has added that children in the past had the freedom to appreciate art and be engaged in creative work.
