It s school admissions stupid!

    Even now (March) there are children who have not been admitted to govt. schools due to the chaos in the admission regulations!

    This looks like some sinister `plan` whereby more and more children are `pushed` to join fee levying private schools. Is this the beginning of the end of Free School Education?

    All governments in Sri Lanka are corrupt, but the Rajapakse government is the most corrupt. Children get their first experience of corruption at kindergarten level. I know of a case in a provincial area where a child was not admitted although she lives 2 km. from the school. The reason apparently is that the girls`s mother is working abroad, earning valuable foreign exchange for the country!
