Tamil Education Board opens branch in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Friday, 16 May 2003, 14:03 GMT]
The Jaffna district branch of the Thamileelam Educational Development Board (TEDB) was opened Friday morning at the Jaffna district zonal education office at an event presided over by Professor Shanmugathas of the University of Jaffna, who said that the opening of the TEDB branch was a timely step taken and it would give a boost to the educational development of the peninsula, sources said.

Mr. Mavai Senathirajah, the Tamil National Alliance Jaffna district parliamentarian, lit the flame of sacrifice and Mr.Semmanan, the Jaffna district deputy political head of the LTTE, hoisted the Thamileelam National flag. The flag of the TEDB was hoisted by the former Northeast provincial director of education, Mr.K. Kandasamy.

North East Provincial Education Ministry Secretary Mr.R.Thiagalingam and Provincial Director of Education Mr.S.Mahalingam also participated in the event, sources said.

Mr. Senathirajah said that the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam has given first priority to the educational development in its agenda. “As a result of the war, the standard of education in the Vanni region has not gone down as much as in the Jaffna district, and this is because of LTTE's dedication to the education of Tamils,” he said.

Mr. Mahalingam said the shortage of Tamil medium teachers in the Northeast schools has severely affected the education of Tamil medium students in the province.

Arun Master of the TEDB and Mr.Thiagalingam also spoke, sources said.
