The Kannangara Report

The “Report of the Special Committee on Education (Ceylon), 1943”, more commonly known as “The Kannangara Report”, is available here in PDF format, transcribed to PDF in the public interest by Education Forum Sri Lanka.

There are many recommendations worth taking up even today (and a few that need to be revised) - let’s use this topic to for discussions on the report in general, and open new topics for specific areas; for example

  1. Corporal Punishment in Schools
  2. The importance of Free Play
  3. The role of examinations
  4. Intrinsic Motivation
  5. Art
  6. Literature
