Ceylon Teachers’ Union (CTU) General Secretary, Joseph Stalin, yesterday (1) said underprivileged parents are struggling to raise money to pay donations when enrolling their children to popular schools. 

Due to this, many underprivileged parents lose the opportunity to enrol their children to popular schools in their area.

Stalin added that this situation must change. It is only then that talented underprivileged children can reap the benefits of the free education system, he said.

He said the circular issued by the Department of Education regarding the enrolment of children to schools clearly indicates that under the free education system, donations can’t be obtained by school administrators after enrolment.

Legal action will be taken against school administrators who demand donations from parents, Stalin added.
