EXPANDING OLPC THROUGHOUT THE WORLD

Postby ghrobin » Fri Jan 04, 2008 10:45 pm

OLPC is a revolutionary concept: bringing the world to millions of kids in many countries where education is lagging.

Clearly in some of these countries governments have less concern for education than for their own survival and in many case, the enrichment of the political leaders. I can see where OLPC might pose a threat to such governments.

How to overcome selfish resistance?

Many of these countries extract a lot of US money. Why not encourage th US government -- now or in a year or so -- to strongly advise the kleptocracies to use the OLPC program. Such leverage might be very helpful.
