The main purpose of this study is the examination of how, an equitable distribution of educational resources would factor in as a contributor to more favorable economic growth of Sri Lanka. If the better facilities, and additional educational resources, offered to urban communities are extended to the rural sector that will increase human productivity, leading in turn, to macro-economic growth and economic development. I have derived and tabulated pertinent statistical data so as to answer the research questions entailed by my inquiry. That has been followed by the conclusions and recommendations sections. Qualitative methods were used to interview rural communities with the aim of analyzing their concerns, anxieties and trepidations from a variety of perspectives involving politics, economics, psychology, sociology and culture. A detailed description of inequitable educational resource distribution among rural communities is included in the document which shows the negative impacts to the macro-economic growth of short-sighted and irrational practices. Thereafter, the study has focused on the lack of leadership characteristics of Sri Lankan political policy makers.
