The FLSP held a press briefing on 28.06.2019 addressing the several obnoxious decisions taken by the minister of education.The government has been attempting to expedite its neo-liberal agenda by privatizing the public education.The student movement of Sri Lanka was able to defeat most of those steps through their uncompromising struggles.Now the government is trying to burdening the the parents of public schools by introducing direct and in direct charges.While curtailing the funds for public education Minister has introduced student insurance policy for schools.The ulterior motive behind this to gradually compel parents to pay for the policy and convert it to loan schemes.Apart from that by the last budget students loans were introduced supposedly stating that it was a revolutionary step.However this is an attempt to promote private universities while catching them to a web of debt.
