She pointed out that Sri Lanka is struggling with ifs political agenda and the quality of education

“It is not about education as we say only, it’s about creating a knowledge-based society. It’s about knowledge”, she stated adding that the overall quest should be to find new ways of teaching and learning the outcomes with the value based education. Education for global citizenship and to change this traditional classical form of transmission.
