Issues over A.L. Mass Com to be rectified

The Education Ministry is taking steps to rectify the issues relating to the revised Advanced Level Mass Media and Communication subject.

Certain teachers of Mass Media and Communication and some teachers’ unions opposed to the new syllabus introduced for the Mass Media and Communication subject by the Education Ministry. Considering the oppositions, the ministry held an all-party discussion last Thursday to identify the issues of the syllabus and address them.

At the discussion, attention was paid on practical difficulties when teaching the subject at schools. It was revealed that teachers are undergoing hardships as the teacher guidance has not been issued by the Education Publications Department. Thereafter, it was decided to issue the teacher guidance book before April 21. Also, steps will be taken to issue model question papers. Teachers not been trained to teach the new syllabus will receive training promptly.
