Deputies returned to the Education Commission the law draft for Romania joining the worldwide program "One laptop per child" (OLPC). The document was already rejected by the Senate, but was approved by the Education Commission in the House of Deputies.

OLCP aims at selling special laptops for young students. In the Romanian version, the program was expanded to cover the teachers' needs as well.

Ioan Ghise, promoter of the program, says that there is no political will to develop the program. Ignorance is not a bless in this case: "A minister promised to support Intel and Microsoft in this initiative, when the subject of the program was laptops with AMD processors and Linux operating system", Ghise added.

The choice of the offering is also an issue, with at least two other industry players offering products similar to the 100 $ laptop.
