    You do not need a fortune to pursue many distance learning programs available in Sri Lanka. Of course I don't believe poor students could afford it but there are many middle class students who can and only don't due to the difficulty of learning on your own.

    Sri Lanka is bringing up generations and generations of spoonfed students with no creative capacity to think outside their tuition master's box.
