Teachers urge action on Tamil text books

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 19 January 2000, 13:00 GMT]
The Ceylon Tamil Teachers Union (CTTU) has requested the Minister of Education and Higher Education to take stern disciplinary action against the Department of Educational Publications for failing to print and distribute text books to Tamil medium schools in the northern province in time.

Mr T. Mahasivam, General Secretary of the Ceylon Tamil Teachers' Union, has asked the Minister to provide an assurance that textbooks to Tamil medium students would be distributed without further delay.

The letter, sent to the Minister of education and Higher Education by the CTTU today, says that, to date, not a single textbook has been supplied to Tamil medium students in the education zones of Jaffna, Killinochchi, Mullaitivu, Mannar and Vavuniya north.

"We fear that the free textbook distribution will not be completed before the end of January unless some drastic steps are taken against the irresponsible officials attached to the Department of Educational Publications," said Mr T. Mahasivam in his letter.
