I just read one of those "little" news items that lifted my heart.. The president of Bolivia announced that Bolivia is the third country in Latin America that is free of illiteracy. With support from Cuba and Venezuela, a massive educational effort has helped more than 800,000 Bolivians to learn to read and write. Most people were taught to read and write Spanish but many people learned their mother tongue Aymara or Quechua.

Research has shown again and again that education is one of the best investments for a country. I expect that this will prove to be true for Bolivia as well.
