The Cabinet has given the nod for the appointment of news Principals.
The Ministers who met yesterday approved this proposal submitted by Education Minister Bandula Gunawardene. The purpose is to expand the quantum of Principals in the education and tertiary education sector.
Accordingly, it is planned to absorb more than 4000 qualified cadres into the category of Principals covering the Information Technology, English, Science and General Education spheres. Half of them would be recruited through the normal administrative procedure rules and the balance on ability and merit.
