SPC PAC probes language teaching racket

The Southern Provincial Council’s Public Accounts Committee has commenced a high level probe into allegations that funds had been collected from parents on the pretext of teaching their children the Tamil, English and Japanese langauges.

Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee, Provincial Council Member Nalin Hewage, has been inundated with complaints that funds have been collected from hundreds of parents that such classes would be conducted after school hours.

Investigations have so far revealed that the perpetrators had told the parents that approval had been given by the Provincial Director of Education for the classes and special books too had been sold to children.

Southern Provincial Council Director of Education, N. J. Karunadasa said that no permission had been granted to conduct such classes or to collect funds for the purpose.

He said the whole exercise was illegal.
