    Colombo schools have planted some one to collect funds,instead of the Principal.

    This principal should have done the same.

    But still principal is a suspect../ not the best thing to be happen to a Principal.

    Ananda Principal is one of the culprits who was accused of accepting illegal gratificatiion. Several parents went to Courts against the man yet he seem to be held in very high esteem despite all these charges.

    A agree with GCHULA99. Majority of them not only in Colombo but all around the country accept some sort of gratification for school admissions.

    GCHULA

    I was referring the present guy. If in 1980 Rs.20,000.- was asked (must be worth Rs.4-5 lakhs now) the things are not different.

    Ashmaed to be an old Anandian after hearing your tale!

    All this talk of SDS is a red herring.

    Explaining what the School Development Society/Fund is meant to achieve is an attempt to divert attention from the main issue, i.e.: principal demanding a bribe. If she had only requested a voluntary donation to SDS, no parent in their right mind would have taken trouble to lodge a complaint with the bribery commission.

    That said, no government employee will give two hoots about taking a relatively small bribe (although may be significant to the victim), when MPs and ministers of the government are let off the hook, despite allegations of taking hundreds of millions of rupees in bribes. We cannot expect lower layers of public servants to set an example when the topmost servants like ministers and MPs (who are supposed to set an example to others) are running riot.

    PachchaSira,

    Lot of people who are rich could afford bribes admitted their children to good schools in Colombo.Few were admitted on merit scholarships.Many rich children end up their education as small timers where they could have done from any school in the country and giving those Chances to clever students.

    Look, many politicians children are from first class schools but most of them are thugs and roughs.
