For an example of a nation that is rapidly providing an EXCELLENT computer education for their children, look to Spain...300,000 computers in just ONE region of Spain (Andalusia) in their schools, PLUS an extra 180,000 notebooks, all running linux. Compare this with the problems the Toronto District School Board has handling a mere 43,000 computers with a dismal 10 to 1 student to computer ratio...sigh...oh, and the region has saved over 180 MILLION Euros while providing this vastly better computer education system for their students!
