Tuition classes banned on Sunday mornings

It has been observed that many senior school students don't attend Sunday Dhamma Schools as they attend private tuition classes in urban areas.

The undue serious competition that exists among students in passing public examinations, parents too are reluctant to send their children to Sunday Dhamma schools.

As a result of this most of our children are bankrupt in spiritual and moral values.

Teenagers have become criminals, thieves, murderers and child abusers.

There tender minds are polluted with negative thoughts such as violence, selfishness, hatred, jealousy and taking revenge from their opponents.

Teachers and elders should inculcate positive attitude in the minds of these unfortunate child victims", said the chief advisor of Kurunegala District Sunday Dhamma schools Ven. K. Dhammananda Nayaka Thera, at a meeting of parents and teachers of Dhamma schools of Kurunegala and Puttalam Districts held at Bingiriya National school.

However, NWP Chief Minister Dayasiri Jayasekara has now decided to ban all private tuition classes in the NWP during Sunday morning sessions.

It is a decision to be admired. The Chief Minister has already understood that mere academics alone are useless to a country's progress. Our future generations should be fostered with noble human values that were taught by our great religious philosophers and founders of Religions more than two thousand years ago, the Nayaka Thera said.

The Divisional Secretaries of the Kurunegala and Puttalam Districts of the NWP too were present on that occasion.
