The universities can on take in 27603 students to Universities so no what happens to the balance 281466 students even if you are less 1 mark to enter, what solutions do the political groups and the present university students who go on srike have to say about this, why do they all oppose private universities being opened are we really living in a fools paradise or a banana republic, why cant politicians keep their hands off the universities and let the student just do their studies, this is the only country where university students are on roads half of their time, naturally once these guy pass out and come yet again they are on the roads shouting slogans and wasting public money
Of course, does Sri Lanka require the services of 27,603 graduates in 3-4 years’ time?
The Hon Prime Minister is engaging Mckinsey to plan the economy because he apparently thinks it is too complex for locals.
Sri Lanka is moving into a ‘service economy’ where larger capital infrastructure needs are almost complete. At least, we have plans for development of infrastructure including major highways, communications and the Megapolis trade utilities.
Our water, wastewater and power infrastructure require major upgrades and expansions.
I would like to see a breakdown of the 27,603 to see areas of qualifications to determine if the areas fit with our needs.
What training facilities are we developing to services the ‘services industry’? Trade based training on operations and maintenance of infrastructure, hospitality industry, agriculture, fisheries, supply chain management are important. The talent and capabilities of the remaining 281,466 should be channelled into these trade based programs.
Sri Lanka should seek assistance from Germany and Australia to establish trade based training for our youth.
Converting all into meaningless graduates in Universities will only result in massive demonstrations in Lipton Circus.
