The Ceylon Principals’ Association says there will be a severe shortage of teachers if teacher faculties are not retrieved as COVID-19 treatment centres.
Secretary Piyasiri Fernando speaking at a media briefing in Puttalam today said although most faculties have discontinued functioning as treatment centres, they are yet to be taken over by the Ministry of Education.
Fernando said equipment at hostels of the relevant faculties have been damaged. He said 18 of the 20 teacher faculties were used as treatment centre.
He urged the Education Ministry to take steps to retrieve the faculties without delay.
