Circular prevents gratifications for teachers! Featured

Accepting gratifications by teachers and other school staff from students is a punishable offence under the establishment code and the bribery or corruption act, says education secretary Sunil Hettiarachchi.

Issuing a circular, he says the principal has the responsibility to ensure that no one is allowed to collect money to give rewards to teachers.

The education secretary adds that there is information about organized moves to collect money to give various gifts to teachers at the year end, teachers’ day etc.
