School textbooks for private, international schools
Discontinuing the prevailing practice the Ministry of Education would
take steps to issue school textbooks to all private and international
schools from 2008 to allow students to sit for the local examinations
rather than foreign exams, Education Ministry sources said.
Accordingly, private and international schools would be able to
conduct educational activities according to the same curriculum which is
taught in Government schools and prepare students for local examinations
while students can make the best use of the textbooks.
Under this programme private and international schools will not
implement foreign curricula which is not suitable for the Sri Lankan
Private and International schools are advised to inform the Education
Publication Department about their textbook requirements.
