The most popular answer to the question of how to improve the quality of schools and education in developing countries is: Invest in more teachers and more schools. But could this really be the solution to the educational problems in poor countries? I sincerely doubt whether this solution is feasible. I even fear it is completely impossible to solve the plight of education in the developing world by this route alone. ICT4E has the same problems as ICT4D. It is inconceivable that a solution to every local problem could be devised by a person sitting behind a keyboard in Western-Europe. People on the ground, locals, know what is needed and what is available.
