I commented not long ago on an article from the NY Times on education in India. Here's an Indian perspective: "It is the poor rural children, thousands of them, who paid for my education by losing their opportunity to become semi-literate. The system is tilted against them and unless there is a radical change in the way that education is funded, they will continue to pay the price for subsidizing the US for decades to come." Be sure to see the rest of the blog for commentary on the false bottom of the pyramid, scepticism about the OLPC (0ne laptop per child) project, and the high cost of connectivity in India.
