Sri Lanka’s basic education is almost universally available. Yet participation falls at higher levels of education. children from lower-income groups have less access to education at A-level, where enrolment rates vary from 29% for children in the poorest 10% of households to 73% for children in the richest 10% of households. This is partly due to disparities in O-level success rates by income groups. Disparities in education completion are most prominent in O-level and A-level success rates. - Priyanka Jayawardana-Research Economist at IPS
