This morning I was reading an article about the Penn Manor’s School District 1:1 laptop program. Basically the school is providing 1,725 students with Linux Laptops. They took it a step further and developed their own Imaging solution “Fast Linux Deployment Toolkit” or FLDT.
I find this initiative incredible, but the icing on the cake is that student’s actually participated in testing and refining the FLDT.
Its news articles like these that make me wonder, what is Kuwait’s ministry of education doing? Kuwait’s public schools are simply terrible in terms of funding, and the educational curriculum.
Education is one the keystones of building a successful and healthy society.
