Over 5,000 school dropouts in Puttalam and Kurunegala

There are 5,660 school dropouts in the Kurunegala and Puttalam Districts, a recent survey by the North Western Province Education Department revealed.

Arrangements have been made to direct the school dropouts for formal or non-formal education. The Provincial Education Ministry has planned to re-direct these dropouts to the educational system by 2010. Details of these dropouts have been collected with the help of Divisional Secretaries and Grama Niladharies. The parents of these children will be educated on the benefits of sending their children to schools.

These children have not completed their education due to ignorance, addiction to liquor and parents going abroad for jobs leaving the children under the care of their grandparents.

Deputy Director of Education, Kurunegala R.M. Dharmadasa said the NWP-PC spends Rs 4 million annually for the project.

All principals have been educated and details of non-schooling children should be forwarded by principals to the Divisional Secretaries to take measures to provide educational opportunities to these children, he said.
