Sri Lanka has a higher literacy rate than most of the area it is in. It is 92% which is astounding for being a developing country. The population of Sri Lanka has a literacy rate that is much higher than that expected for a third world or developing country. It actually boasts the very highest literacy rate in all of South Asia, outrating India for sure.
