Summary

The island of Ceylon had a 1963 population of 10,625,000 and an agricultural economy based upon tea, rubber, coconuts, and rice. Fishing and industrial expansion are receiving emphasis. Economic problems include a declining rate of growth in gross national product, unemployment, and a limited range of exports. Education, under control of the Minister of Education, is compulsory between the ages of five and 14 and is free through the university. Six years of primary education flows into junior secondary, senior secondary, or collegiate schools. Admittance to a technical or teacher training college is possible from collegiate or senior secondary schools, while admittance to a university or law college requires collegiate school completion. Junior secondary students may enter vocational schools. Primary and secondary enrollment was 2,325,000 in 1962. Vocational and technical education is conducted at the university, a technical institute, a trade school, seven junior technical schools, and a basic technical training institute at various levels. Teachers are educated primarily by study abroad, for which scholarships are provided. No regular scheme of apprenticeships exists, though large firms provide systematic training with released time. In-industry training exists in a few larger firms. A technical education commission report details future developments of technical education and training. (JM)
