Teacher Transfer Board dissolved

19 March, 2023

President Ranil Wickremesinghe has ordered the immediate dissolution of the Education Ministry’s Teacher Transfer Board, resulting in the cancellation of approximately 12,500 teacher transfers.

This decision was taken to prevent transfers from disrupting the education of GCE O/L and A/L students and also obstacles faced by the school education process due to various reasons. Therefore, the President has taken this decision to prevent any issue to be created in the school education process based on teacher transfers.

Teachers had filed grievances with the President, calling for scheduled transfers to be at least temporarily suspended and give them some redress due to the economic issues, transportation difficulties, high expenditure, taxes and house rent issues faced by them.
