Regulating of international schools will begin next year, Minister of Education Susil Premajaynatha told Parliament today.
Responding to a question raised by Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa, the Minister said the Department of Education will only look at the available space in schools, available facilities and other criteria such as education qualifications of teachers. “We don’t intend to control any other aspects pertaining to international schools,” the Minister said.
“International schools also come under the purview of Child Protection Authority and this institution can look into any incidents of child abuse in these schools,” he said.
Earlier the Opposition Leader questioned whether the international schools fall under the purview of the Child Protection Authority. (Yohan Perera and Ajith Siriwardana)
