sad Lankan universities not even among top 100 in Asia, laments Minister - 05-20-2006, 11:33 AM

Education Minister Susil Premajayantha said Sri Lankan universities should be brought on par with other universities in the world.

He said Sri Lanka's institutions of higher learning were not even among the top 100 universities in Asia and steps should be taken to look into this.

Addressing teachers and students at Sirimavo Bandaranaike Vidyalaya on Thursday after launching an IT Unit and a new canteen building for the school, he said it was a noteworthy achievement that the school which started with only a few students 33 years ago, today has more than 3,000 students.

"We have started to develop villages and rural schools under the Mahinda Chinthanaya. As part of this programme we provide meals to rural schools. We also plan to fill teacher vacancies at those schools," the Minister said.

Premajayantha said the Government was also planning to uplift and develop higher education.

The Minister said after the re-correction of the 2005 GCE A/L examination Chemistry paper, more students had gained entrance to universities.

"We are also planning to open another University in the Rajarata to increase the intake," he added.
