SRI LANKA: Laws to prevent lecturers going private

New laws will be introduced to discourage public university lecturers from joining private universities, writes Ridma Dissanayake for the Daily News.

Higher Education Minister SB Dissanayake said laws would be introduced to prevent government lecturers joining private universities as full-time staff within three years after resigning from state universities. "However, government university teachers will not be prevented from functioning as visiting lecturers of private universities," he added.

Sources said that the ministry has decided to initiate these measures since there is a tendency for state university lecturers vacating their posts to join private universities for better perks and privileges.
