2013 Jun 26

Senior Minister and Deputy Minister of Finance, Dr. Sarath Amunugama states that the government has decided to completely change the university education system.

He made this statement at a function held in Kandy on Monday.  This function was held to lay the foundation stone for the construction of a new building at the Hatharaliyatha Central College in Kandy.

'No matter how talented a child is, it is difficult to direct a child to the technical stream and to the maths stream. Therefore, when children leave school they have less faith in obtaining a good job. We have decided to completely change the university education system to considerably increase the number of students enrolled to the science and technical streams. We want to do away with the old education system and direct our children to a new education system,' stated Deputy Minister of Finance, Dr. Sarath Amunugama.
