Vanni's Volunteer teachers demand permanent appointments

Volunteer teachers in Vanni called for permanent appointments to be made as promised months ago by the provincial council.

Gathering outside the Chief Minister's Office in Jaffna, volunteer teachers demanded permanent appointments to be made, saying they had worked for years without any progress or remuneration.

The Northern Provincial Council's education minister had said last year that 700 volunteer teachers would be given permanent positions.

However the NPC's education spokesperson responded to the protest saying currently the central government held the authority on appointing permanent teachers.
