‘Students assured 13-year education’

The Education Ministry will implement the 13-year Guaranteed Education Programme at over 800 schools in 2019.

Education Ministry Media Secretary Kalpa Gunaratne said the phase II pilot project of the Gauranteed Education Programme were implemented this year at 150 schools. The pilot project for the programme was initiated in 2017 at 50 schools, he said.

He said thousands of students leave the education system before GCE O/L examination or when they were studying GCE O/L. The 13-year mandatory education policy was developed as an immediate solution for the issue, he said.
