Mar 30, 2011 8:50:17 PM - thesundayleader.lk

Former President Chandrika Kumaratunga has said that education should be modernized in order for it to be effective, and that it also played a big role in solving social issues.

Speaking during a panel discussion under the theme, Education-Going Global, in Dubai, Kumaratunga has said, “The concept of education without borders has to move far beyond the traditional systems that we know, and it is important to include everyone [who are involved] socially, politically and economically.”
The media in Dubai have reported that she has noted that eEducation reforms were introduced in Sri Lanka recently to modernize education and the method of teaching, with new subjects introduced in the curricula, such as Peace Education, so that “they can celebrate the richness of diversity instead of rejecting it.”
