INTRODUCTION

1.1 HISTORY & BACKGROUND


The North East Provincial Council was one of the eight Provincial Councils established
under the Thirteenth Amendment to the Constitution of Sri Lanka in 1987. The Council
was administered by the elected members for a short period and as a result of defunct
nature of the elected assembly, the Administration moved on to the hands of the Hon.
Governor.

The North East Provincial Ministry of Education, Cultural Affairs, and Sports & Youth
Affairs is one of the five Ministries under this Provincial Council and was established in
the Premises of the Department of Education, Trincomalee in 1989. The first Secretary
of the Provincial Ministry of Education was Mr. M. M.Mansoor . The powers and
functions of the Ministry were kept with the relevant section as spelt out in the
Thirteenth Amendment to the Constitution of Republic of Sri Lanka.

But, in the meantime, according to the case filed by the resident of the North East
Province, the decision of the Supreme Court has made the North East entity into two
Provincial Administrations under two Provincial Governments. As a result, the
Northern Provincial Council administration has to move on to a incomplete building of
Department of Agriculture located in Varothayanagar , Trincomalee in the Eastern
Province and it steps into the third year after the bifurcation of the Provinces. The
operations of the offices commenced on 12/12/2006 after demerger and the Northern
Province continued to function in this Campus with sufficient infrastructure
development.

The first Secretary of the Ministry of Education, Cultural Affairs, and Sports & Youth
Affairs of Northern Province is Mr.L.Ilaangovan who is very efficient and innovative in
each and every manner. He leads the officers in a persuasive manner. The officers act
as a team to perform various tasks with collective team spirit.
During the conflict situation, though there were severe threats to the field of
Education in war-torn areas, everything was faced with courage and the Ministry has
provided its best to overcome these problems and challenges. Now everything is going
on smoothly under the guidance and monitoring of the Secretary.

CHAPTER – V11

ISSUES AND CONSTRAINTS

Our Province has experienced difficulties that cannot be expressed by words


during this year as a result of the displacement. In the war-torn areas, the
children as well as the officers faced untold miseries without basic facilities.
But in other places the lack of facilities was due to the over- crowd.
5.1 Problems regarding Resources
a) Shortage of Managerial Officers
Our Province faces a severe shortage of Managerial Staff (SLEAS officers)
in each and every zone.
b) Capital Assets
We were unable to maintain equity in providing capital Assets to the
needy due to the long lasted conflict situation.
c) Infrastructure Facilities
Lack of infrastructure facilities in the schools such as dearth of
classrooms, libraries, laboratories, activity rooms etc.
d) Furniture
There is a great shortage for furniture in Schools as well as Departments
in our province.
