No allowance for Principals?

According to the new circular, although Education Minister Akila Viraj Kariyawasam assured that the allowance school Principals would be increased from March 2017, to date no increment has been received, said General Secretary of the Ceylon Teacher Services Union Joseph Stalin.

However only Principals of the Western Province National Schools had received this allowance for just one month.

Stalin further stated that the Education Ministry had notified that the Principals allowance will not be paid until further notice as the Local Government bodies did not have the financial allocations for the payment of the allowances.
