    Children are our future,
    They study as long 13 years to achieve these heights,
    This all destroyed for simple reason,
    How they will feel? How far they heart break?
    For our political leaders!
    Please do at least something for them

    What's the punishment for the culprits?

    When the culprits are not punished now, system will further deteriorate in future.

    If they are going to accommodate 500 additional this year, will they increase the intake by 5000 next year? If resources are enough for additional 5000 this year, it should be enough for next year also

    Idiocasy in Sri Lankan Education and Public Administration at the highest. The commanwealth Leader in this country now should take note of this. All that is told to you is not what it is in reality.

    Now from A/L stage, students have to go under courts and streets. then in Uni.. No future in education. Next victim would be O/L result?

    Amila Thursday, 13 September 2012 06:46 AM

    Enroll them to some other course in Higher education. Private universities a good solution for future.

    A student Thursday, 13 September 2012 04:46 AM

    Whatever the final outcome of the Supreme Court decision is, this Government cannot deny the responsibility of messing up the process.

    Sri Lanka has experienced this in the past. 30 years of civil war, tens of thousands of life lost. Economy in ruins etc.....

    Dreams shattered, hopes vaporize...few pull out of it others god knows......
