One laptop per child is quite clearly an initiative by a group of companies to make profit. It never had any motive to make children laptop savvy or enrich developing countries. Too many people are falling into the trap of bringing in IT to solve social problems. A child needs a proper school, good teachers and a system that cultivates the child to be creative and get a good foundation in life. What is essentially needed is teacher, a blackboard, chalk pieces and good books. Giveing a laptop to every child is a crazy idea, it does nothing other than fatten the pockets of private companies..
