Education facilities at the rural level is not sufficiently good in everywhere as the attention and assistance of the authorities do not focus in the same way. Inequalities of the distribution of human & physical resources are widely prevailing mostly in many provinces except a few. Some of the schools have been identified to shut down whereas some of them have already been closed under various reasons. However, the students from the rural set up would suffer under this situation since their economical background is poor to afford money for getting tuition or distant schools. The only possible
effort is to develop the school facilities which would be beneficial to the entire children in the village.
Diganegama School has also been identified as school of less facilities but with more human capabilities to improve the life of village children. A dedicated team of teachers and the principal with more commitment & passion would take the lead towards a better education for the village children.
