‘Bring Int. schools under MoE’

Several political parities including the JVP, the MEP and the JHU have requested a committee of intellectuals preparing a new Education Act to bring all the international schools under the purview of the Education Ministry.

The committee of intellectuals chaired by Prof G. B. Gunawardena has collected data on over 200 international schools and about 200,000 children learning there countrywide.

The parties have also proposed to the committee to set up an independent observing committee to monitor the international schools.

A final decision in this regard had not yet been taken, sources said.

If implemented, this will result in the Ministry recommending standards for the international schools.
