Following in the footsteps of many other nations around the globe, Mexico is giving simple free laptop computers to some elementary school students. President Enrique Pena Nieto traveled to Tabasco state earlier this month to inaugurate "Mi Compu.MX" which in its first phase will see some 240,000 kids in Tabasco, Colima and Sonora states get the computers.

President Enrique Pena Nieto visited the “Juventino Rosas” full-time elementary school in the municipality of Ecatepec, where he mingled with students, teachers and parents, whom he assured of, “The government’s effort to promote and achieve higher quality education for all the country’s children and youth.”
He explained that quality schools with tools to ensure better education for our children and youth are part of the aims of the Education Reform. He declared that this reform, “Ensures that education will remain free, and the state will continue to be obliged to provide free education for all Mexicans.”
He added that another of the Educational Reform’s achievements is the educational model involving full-time schools, whereby campuses expand their schedules so that children can engage in artistic, sports, recreational and cultural activities, boost their skills in areas such as math, and receive meals.
“This is a breakthrough for education in our country, for our children and our youth,” he said.
At the event, President Peña Nieto also thanked the House of Representatives for its passage of next year’s budget, “which will allow us to build more full-time schools throughout Mexico.”
