My full response is at http://diya-rakusa.blogspot.com/2010/06/it-and-education-in-21st-century.html The short version: Yes, Sri Lanka must increase the quality and market orientation of its State university graduates. But the numbers too must increase - demand will no longer be a concern once the market recognizes and adjusts its prices and expectations for the improved output. If the numbers do not follow, there is a great danger that the tiny number of candidates who make it all the way through Sri Lanka's state education "funnel" (or are rich enough to bypass it) will become the focus of new social divisions that we have not been free of in the last century.
