    Theoretically a good initiative. No costs mentioned, though and how it's funded. I would say it's better to first invest this money in our teachers, pay them well, provide international and local teacher training before you just replicate an already archaic education system. Have a look at Iceland, which has the worlds no 1 education system. It was the above that helped, rather than technology.

    Another balloon story. This guy is fast becoming a "wickataya" in the new cabinet. Lots of jokes.
