«I suggest the president take a look at a modest country across the Atlantic that’s turning into the world leader in rethinking education for the 21st century.

That country is Portugal. Its economy in early 2005 was sagging, and it was running out of the usual economic fixes. It also scored some of the lowest educational achievement results in western Europe.

So Prime Minister Jose Socrates took a courageous step. He decided to invest heavily in a "technological shock" to jolt his country into the 21st century. This meant, among other things, that he’d make sure everyone in the workforce could handle a computer and use the Internet effectively.

This could transform Portuguese society by giving people immediate access to world. It would open up huge opportunities that could make Portugal a richer and more competitive place. But it wouldn’t happen unless people had a computer in their hands.»

    O artigo está bom. É importante reter que há coisas que fazemos bem, e lá fora observam-nos. Pena os comentários de Portugueses que por lá se encontram a mandar tudo abaixo.

    Infelizmente continuamos incapazes de olhar para o bom que temos e que fazemos, dando preferência ao negativismo e critica.

    Nada nasce perfeito, é preciso análise e adaptação.
