Jaffna zone education problems discussed

[TamilNet, Friday, 12 November 2004, 18:13 GMT]
"The reason for the decline of standard of education in Jaffna district is ignoring the development of rural schools when allocating funds," said Mr.Mavai Senathirajah, Jaffna district Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarian when addressing the first consultation meeting held Friday to review the progress of education development in Jaffna education zone, sources said.

The meeting was held at the conference hall of the Jaffna zonal education office and presided by Zonal Director of Education Mr.V.Vigneswaran. TNA parliamentarians Mr.K.Sivanesan, Mr.Suresh Premachchandran, Mr.S.Gajendran and Ms Pathmini Sithamparanathan, Thamileelam Education Unit Deputy Head Mr.Arun and several divisional education officers also participated in the conference.

Mr.Mavai Senathirajah said more funds are allocated and more teachers appointed to urban schools in the district thus neglecting rural schools. Resources should be distributed equal to all schools in the district, he stressed.

" We should hold regular discussion with academicians and educationists to uplift the education," Mr.Mavai Senathirajah said.

Parliamentarian Mr.Suresh Premachchandran said leading schools in the Jaffna district still receive funds for their development. This has created a situation for rural students to leave their schools thus seeking admission to leading urban schools.
