Teacher transfers in Eastern Province politicized

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 15 November 2011, 22:56 GMT]
Teacher transfers in the eastern province are being carried out as dictated by ruling party politicians despite assurance by the Provincial Ministry of Education Secretary that transfers would be made through national transfer boards in which teacher trade union representatives are also included, according to the General Secretary of the All Ceylon Teachers Union (ACTU) Mr. Joseph Stalin. In Batticaloa district alone more than 150 teachers have received transfer orders.

All such transfers made without the consensus of the teacher trade unions according to the policy of the National Teacher Transfer Board would be challenged in court of law by ACUT, according to the ACTC secretary.

Except in two or three education zones in the province teacher transfers are carried out in other zones according to the instruction of ruling party politicians, Mr. Stalin added.
