Majority of the people in Sri Lanka do not see education as their right and is considered as another welfare aspect of the government. They are not aware their rights to participate in the decision making process, inquiring the procedures followed by the authorities and how to claim their rights.
This situation leads to degrading the quality of the education and violate the basic human rights. There is a remarkable demarcation among the schools with regard to resource allocation. This situation makes a negative impact on the children in the remote and underprivileged areas. CED conducted a training workshop on right based education. This programme helped member organizations to build new contact with the union leaders and policy makers of the education sector. This programme was held in 21 of March at SAPSRI training centre Rajagiriya
