Trade Unions Oppose Bandula’s Move

Mar 5, 2011 10:21:36 AM - thesundayleader.lk

Trade unions have voiced their disapproval to the government’s move to extend school hours.

The Ceylon Teachers’ Union has said that the extending of school hours is contrary to educational psychology.

The Union has pointed out that the current school hours have been decided following discussions between educational experts including educational psychologists.

CTU Chairman Joseph Stalin has said Education Minister Bandula Gunawardana has decided on extending the school hours without discussing the matter with the relevant authorities.

Gunawardana told yesterday that the Education Ministry was going to extend school hours from 7.30 am till 3.30 pm from January next year.
