The CTU has demanded an immediate halt to the posting of military officers to teach the Sinhala language at schools in Mullaitivu, Kilinochchi and Thunukkai.
In a statement, its secretary Joseph Stalin says only teachers appointed in accordance with the Sri Lanka Teachers Service constitution should teach at schools.
Instead of recruiting teachers appropriately, the posting of military officers to these schools to teach the Sinhala language will further distance the northern schools system from civilian administration, he warns.
It is also against the Sri Lanka Teachers Service constitution to give teaching responsibilities to persons who have no experience or the required discipline as teachers, the CTU secretary points out.
