Minister of Education Akila Viraj Kariyawasam says the main objective of the ’13 Years Guaranteed Education Programme’ is to produce a citizen suited for the corporate world through school education.

Speaking at the unveiling of the National Education Plan today the Minister said a student’s talent should be enhanced through education.

The Minister noted if the public is only concerned of passing O/Levels and A/Levels people like Amaradeva, Victor Rathnayake, Nanda Malini, Sugath Thilakaratne, Sanath Jayasuriya and Susanthika Jayasinghe would not exist.

Minister Kariyawasam stressed the government has allocated a large sum for the programme and under the leadership of the Prime Minister the government was able to recruit teachers and obtain resources.
