The cover story on Montage Magazine(Sep/Oct) is the Worsening Crisis in Education. This monthly news magazine does a good job Of picking the right theme at the right time and hitting hard where it should.
The contributors to the latest issue are:
- Victor Ivan (The Travails of School and Free Education),
- Kabir Hashim, MP (The Mess Gets Worse);
- Sunil Jayanthe Navaratne (University Education: An Obsolete System) and;
- Prof Lal Perera (School Admissions: A New Crisis in Education)
Overall it is a good read covering the current state of affairs, although I felt the higher education piece could have been a little more than an extract from a management text book, and Kabir Hashim could have given us a sneak preview of what education policies would be like in a UNP government, but those shortcomings should not take away the value of this issue.
Please buy the magazine, read it and tell us what you think.
