President calls for job-oriented education system
President Mahinda Rajapaksa directed the education authorities to take prompt action to structure a job-oriented education system to comply with the present day job requirement.
The President made this observation when he had a meeting with ministers and officials of Education, Higher Education, Youth Affairs and Skills Development, Science and Technology and Sports Ministries at Temple Trees yesterday.
He further explained that certain sectors, in respect of which there is less knowledge and education, should be opened to school leavers and university students.
The education system in the country should be changed to fill the vacancies in these fields, he pointed out.
Some entrepreneurs said that they have to hire skilled labour and technicians from foreign countries for certain jobs in the market.
An attitudinal change is needed among the student population in technical and vocational education, the President noted.
In a bid to prepare an education system through which modern day requirements would be met, schools, universities and vocational and technical experts should get together to form a suitable system for the country, he added.
Senior Ministers Tissa Vitharana, DEW Gunasekara, Ministers Basil Rajapaksa, Dullas Alahapperuma, Bandula Gunawardena, S B Dissanayake, Mahindananda Aluthgamage, Pavithra Wanniarchchi, Deputy Ministers Nandimithra Ekanayake, Gamini Wijith Wijayamuni Soyza and Duminda Disananyake were also present.

But then ‘job means money’ so it’ll be a money orientated education.! Money dominated people & socity & country will be made.!
Isn’t it..? Is that correct & Is that perfect view to have..?
If so it’ll be the orientation of destruction too…!!!
Because being wealthy without having GOOD CONDUCT is ruinous.
But in contrary, having good conduct even without money will lead to peace & prosper & less troubles.
See here, even arabic countries having enough wealth, they don’t let money to dominate there & they dominate the RELIGION which they ‘believe’ as good conduct(although it isn’t realy). They handle all under the strict religious laws, although there’re extrems as they don’t know what the real good conduct is.
So we should be ashamed abt this, knowing good conduct of pure Dhamma as buddhists.
It should be Dhamma orientated education here despite of job. Otherwise all will be sorry with or without jobs…!!!
