    All tution classes should be abolished. Little children as young as 4,5,6 years, are dragged by their parents to tution classes and they are in the classes till night falls when they should be playing with their brothers, sisters, parents and friends so that their little innocent brains are developed in the right way. What are Sri Lankan Psycologists and Doctors doing are they looking south. Andrew
