Govt. To Build Additional Schools

Dec 23, 2010 11:37:01 PM - thesundayleader.lk

The Education Ministry has decided to build an additional 1,000 schools to address the massive demand to admit children in to several popular schools.

Education Minister Bandula Gunawardena says that these additional schools will be built within three years.

Addressing a gathering in Colombo, Gunawardena said the government was considering a proposal to remove the requirement of a pass in mathematics at the GCE O/Levels for students who wish to do aesthetic subjects for their A/Levels.

According to Gunawardena, around 100,000 students were denied the opportunity to study for A/Levels every year due to this requirement.
