"I assure you, that the typewriting machine, when played with expression, is not more annoying than the piano when played by a sister or near relation. Indeed many among those most devoted to domesticity prefer it." -Oscar Wilde, 1897

I read the Educacion en Latino America article. Have you ever heard anyone mention the need for texts to be reused, rather than bought every year...a HUGE expense on ANYfamily, and crazy to have it be the POOR countries suffer this concept. Or related: the demand that government pay for the TEXTS.
And then there is the whole RED TAPE involved in registering for "colegio". Is it a latin blind spot? red tape...often misinterpreted in Ecuador as a sign of progress.
