“Steps will be taken to provide school uniforms to all school children at the beginning of next school term” – The Minister of Education Dullas Alahapperuma

The school term of 2019 is scheduled to be ended within next three days (3). But it is a sad event that the measures have not been taken to provide uniforms to the children for the year of 2020. Total responsibility of that must be taken by the Ministry of Education.

The Presidential Commission had received complaints saying that the government has to bear more expenses in the process of issuing vouchers instead of uniforms to the school children which had initiated by the previous government. Accordingly a decision had not been taken whether to give vouchers or provide uniform material in the coming years. Because of this, a cabinet paper with the prices of the previous year had been submitted to the former cabinet for the year of 2020 but a decision had not been given to it.
