Several protests are underway across the island demanding solution to teacher shortages in schools.

A group of parents protested in front of Heenatiya Maha Vidyalaya in Balapitiya yesterday claiming that the school does not have a grade five teacher.

In the meantime, a separate protest was launched by parents in front of the zonal education office urging authorities to halt the transfer of 108 teachers temporarily.

Few of the parents met representatives of the zone’s teacher transfer board. Later it was decided to temporarily halt the transfer of grade five teachers till September.
