The Government plans to launch an accelerated programme to develop all schools, including the schools in the North and East, under the Mahinda Chinthana.
Minister Bandula Gunawardean said the Educational Policy will be sculpted before the end of this year. All schools will be monitored and views of principals, teachers and students obtained. Plans are afoot to categorize schools as primary and secondary.
The Minister said that the standard of all schools would be further upgraded under the proposed scheme.
