Prof Uyangoda, Dr. Dewasiri Axed From National Education Institute

Professor Jayadewa Uyangoda and Dr. Nirmal Ranjith Dewasiri have been removed from the administrative body of the National Education Institute. 

The Secretary of the Institute had informed the two academics that they had been removed with immediate effect. 

According to the letter written by the Secretary, the decision has been made following instructions given by the minister. The letter does not explain as to why the two academics have been removed from the National Education Institute. 

The decision, however, has come under heavy criticism from education sector trade unions.
