Despite the court order to withhold the Education ministry’s leadership training program for the freshers of Sri Lankan universities, Sri Lanka government carried out their army training program as planned. Sri Lankan students and their teachers and parents were apprehensive about this program.
Now this leadership program is underway and I saw images of students taking lessons from Army officers.
Issuing a media release, Dr. Ranjith Devasiri, the president of Federation of University Teachers Association (FUTA) said that this leadership training program is suspicious.
This decision to give a leadership training to freshers is a brain child of Minister S.B.Disanayaka. I wonder whether he has consulted university professors regarding this. According to FUTA , there has been no formal planning for this.
As student are attending this training these days, i would like to know what is happening during this training. It is always better to listen to the people who are really going through this experience. So If there is any student who attended this training or their parents please share your experience with us.
