We need to develop the quality of education - Minister Eran

Youngsters come to meet politicians seeking jobs. This is a situation to be ashamed of. They are sometimes more qualified than the politicians. This is pathetic plight. Hence, we need to develop the quality of education and children must be taught how to think and not what to think, said the State Minister of Finance Eran Wickramaratne in parliament today.

Joining the Committee stage debate of the ‘Budget 2019’ when the Expenditure Heads of the Education Ministry and City Planning, Water Supply and Higher Education Ministry were taken up yesterday, he said, “We need to develop a curriculum that would develop a child’s head, heart and hands. We also need to think how a child’s education can be beneficial to them as a means of income too. We must pave the way for those who don’t have to become those who have.”
