    Our education system is so outdated. The govt. must review the system and make changes quickly so that our younger generation can compete in the international market in the next decade.

    Actually, from an outsider's perspective (and unbiased), compared to the schooling received where I'm from (Australia), the schooling in Sri Lanka is far superior.Don't take it from me, look at how many highly educated Engineers, Scientists, Mathematicians, Technologists, Architects etc. which are from Sri Lanka.Unfortunately, it's the politicians that have zero education.
