‘Unions’ action affects students’ future’

A large number of students of Government schools seem to have missed the chance of appearing for the A/L Exam 2020 and the Grade Five Scholarship Exam 2020 as some school heads have delayed sending the applications of the candidates to the Examinations Department, Deputy Prelate of the Kurunegala District and Chief Advisor of the Sunday Dhamma Schools of the Kurunegala and Puttalam Districts Most Ven. Dunkannawe Vineetha Nayaka Thera said. The Thera was speaking to the Daily News yesterday in Kurunegala.

The closing date for the applications ended yesterday (15). Commissioner General of Examinations B. Sanath Pujitha has informed that no further extension will be granted to send applications.

“School heads and teachers have used innocent students as hostages to win their demands,” the Thera said.

“While the Government is battling the pandemic, these short-sighted and politically-motivated elements in guise of teachers and school heads seem to be ruining the students’ future,” the Thera said.

“Parents are much worried and mentally harassed by these violent acts of trade unions. While enjoying salaries and all the other benefits, these teachers have ignored even online teaching of the students,” the Thera said.
