The  parties in power should not forget the responsibility to produce graduates with vocational expertise – President

A graduate with vocational  skills should be produced to match the local and foreign job market requirements in the university system. This  should not be delayed further by the parties in power, said the President.

President Maithripala Sirisena said this in the book launch of ”Sri Lankan education system and the mismatch of  the job market” by  Dr. Mohan Lal Grero  held at Bandaranaike Memorial   International Conference Hall today(2).

President further said that the voice for making reformations in the system of education that suits the job market has been raised  in the country in the past.

It was a long term request and many research reports were  released on that issue. Howevet it was not properly answered and that it is sad to see that none of those who speak on behalf of their own  union rights had not  considered this matter.

The President further pointed out  that the era of the graduates  raising their voices for jobs will see an end when this problem is properly solved.

Dr. Mohan Lal Grero has composed a research thesis called “Sri Lankan education system and the mismatch of  the job market” for his doctorate on the science of education was launched as a book.

The book discusses the fundamental capabilities of  the Sri Lankan education system and has elaborated on the  challenges and the responsibility of the whole educational system.

The first copy of the book was presented to the President by Dr.Mohan Lal Grero.

Speaker Karu Jayasooriya, Thilanaga Sumathipala, Prof. J.B. Dissnanayake, Prof. Mohan De Silva and other PHD holders, professors, experts and distinguished guests were presented in the event.
