In Uruguay, a small and poor South American country, ALL school children have a Computer given to them by the State. It is the X0, a cheap and rugged computer, with Flash Memory and WiFi, sound, camera and microphone, educational software: a Netbook for children we could say.
The children take it home, use it for homework. It has strong security measures so is useless to steal it, as it will not work.
☼ As you can see in the photograph all the schoolchildren in Uruguay, girls and boys alike, wear a white smock and a big dark blue tie. It is a way to cover differences in class, often expressed in clothes, and also the white smocks are easy to keep clean for the better health of the children.
Needless to say, the situation in the schools in Spain is far worse and in every way more backward than in Uruguay.
