Sri Lanka today signed a $100 million credit agreement with the World Bank to support Sri Lanka’s efforts to strengthen and modernize the general education system in the country.
 
The General Education Modernization Project (GEM) will modernize and diversify the curriculum of general education in keeping with the transformation taking place in the Sri Lankan society and economy.
 
The project will help broaden choices at the GCE A-level grades so that students have the flexibility in selecting subjects from among the arts,
management, science, technology, and vocational streams.
 
Learning material for English language and Mathematics will be developed digitally and the focus will be on children from schools located in more disadvantaged regions.
 
The project will benefit school students both at the primary (grades 1-5) and at the secondary (grades 6-13) levels.
 
Technical education and vocational training institutes, the academic and managerial staff of the schools will also benefit from this project.
