No more girls’ schools or boys’ schools - Bandula

Minister of Education Bandula Gunawardana said that the Ministry of Education is now thinking about making boys and girls schools all mixed schools as it is the accepted policy of the ministry regarding the schooling system.

He further said that the time of separating schools over racial, religious and gender basis is over and that in the future, no school shall be opened based on ethnic groups.

Minister made these comments at a discussion held at Lakshman Kadirgamar Institute for International Relations and Strategic Studies (LKIIRSS) regarding the approach to education in the national policy for social integration.

Minister Gunawardana said that a schooling system which has no separation over ethnicity, religion or gender would lead to a social and national integration.
