All school teachers must be graduates by 2027: Dullas

All school teachers must be graduates by 2027, Education Minister Dullas Alahapperuma said. He was speaking at a recent meeting in Kegalle.

Seventy percent of teachers are not graduates, and furthermore, 25% of primary teachers are not even trained, the minister said.

The National Colleges of Education produce the highest number of teachers for schools. Therefore, they are to be upgraded to ‘Universities’, he said, adding that Cabinet has approved the proposal regarding the matter.

Furthermore, the District-Level Z-Score System used in the country so far is to be replaced with a School-Level Z-Score System. This has been decided taking into consideration the injustice faced by students in rural schools, Minister Alahapperuma said.

He added that teachers employed at rural schools would also receive an additional allowance in the future.
