The Education Minister has revealed that children will be given a Skills Certificate when they leave the school after studies. He was addressing the Pirivena Teachers Convention.
The Minister pointed out that it is planned to issue a skills certificate instead of school leaving certificate to children when they leave the school instead of pushing them on to the road. This will prevent them from going behind politicians seeking jobs.
The Hambantota District Pirivena Teachers convention was organized at the Sri Dhammadinna Pirivena Vihare in Tangalla. Nearly 300 clergy and laity teachers of 29 Government registered Pirivenas attended this Convention.
