Congress wants an e-book reader for low-income kids

Posted February 10th, 2010 by Elteto

In the midst of the continued debate about economy, climate and war issues, it is good to see the government work on education causes as well. Cheap and easy access to books and Internet in any format is a worthy literacy initiative. Well-read people understand the world, governments and politics better, and will be able to make decisions, vote for the right issues, express themselves better, and have their voices heard. A perfect example of this is Afghanistan, where the greatest danger to the Taliban is educated Afghan villagers who will no longer tolerate the extremists to force the population to live in the 13th Century. Estonia also comes to mind, where Internet access is considered a civil right.
