ONE CITIZEN, ONE COMPUTER.

ONE CITIZEN, ONE COMPUTER. The other day, I was watching TV when I heard that the government of an African nation decided to run a program of mass education en-titled:"One citizen,one computer". Hearing that refreshing news, I told myself: "Here is a nation that put aside military and war weapons at last. Instead, this country is now eager to use intellectual weapons to fight poverty. Cheer up to that African nation ready to set an education policy according to the saying of Nelson Mandela: <>. The program will provide millions of computers in class-rooms in all schools even in the villages far from the capital city. Students in those out of the way villages will be able to learn at the same speed and with the same means as those living in modern well equipped cities. School teachers in a poor remote region will use for their daily teaching tasks the same powerful means as office workers in the arrogant high skyscrapers in downtown. Researchers in their laboratories as well as farmers in the fields will be equally connected to the internet. As a result, they can receive instant information about matters related to their work. Important instructions, warnings, news on fertilizers or dangerous products, environmental concerns will be notified at the light speed. Health issues dealt in national campaigns will impact more considerably the target-population than it has ever been. What is the feasibility of this program? Is it affordable for the national budget? Are foreign funds and investors involved in that project?All those problems as important as they might be are not insurmountable. Indeed such a huge project supposes top human resources capable of managing this titanic endeavor and involves a very high cost. However, whatever the cost, wisdom commands to be pleased with the government that committed itself to launch such a valuable program; all those involved in the process deserve to be cheered up as well. On the long run, their commitment will bring more peace and more prosperity. As for the cost here is a piece of advice from Walter Cronkite:<< Whatever the price of our libraries, the price is cheap compared to that of an ignorant nation.>>
