Colombo (News 1st): Speaking at an event to present Teaching Science Diplomas to 2365 applicants Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said, preparations are being made to obtain Singaporean support to reform the education sector in the country.

He noted that a decision must be made whether to continue with Sinhala Schools, Tamil Schools, Buddhist, Hindu, Catholic and Muslim schools or common schools. He added that the school system needs to be restructured in order to ensure such ideas and views of separatists do not arise again.

The premier pointed out that D.S. Senanayake created a system in order to ensure such things do not happen and even though they neglected it, Singapore absorbed that system.

PM Wickremesinghe said he has contacted the Singaporean government as well their Minister of Interior who is currently in the island. They’ve assured their fullest support. A group of officials from the Ministry of Higher Education will be sent to Singapore to study the systems and proposals.

“Let’s get ready for the new system.” – Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe
