Computadoras y crisis educativa
La educación pública atraviesa una etapa de declive que afecta a los chicos y jóvenes provenientes de los hogares más pobres. Ha bajado notablemente su calidad y esto se refleja en indicadores que le asignan un pobre rendimiento aún en comparación con los países de la región. Hay notables carencias de infraestructura y persiste un proceso de empobrecimientomaterial y cultural de docentes, padres y alumnos. En este contexto, la educación se presenta como un débil agente de inclusión social, con escasa potencia transformadora.

Difícilmente este cuadro se revierta con la distribución de computadoras portátiles entre los estudiantes secundarios, aunque este anuncio presidencial al concretarse podrá contribuir a reducir la brecha informática, obligará a quelas escuelas accedan a Internet y generará un natural entusiasmo original entre los alumnos. La computadora, obviamente, es un medio de encuentro con el mundo de conocimiento, pero su presencia en la escuela no suple por sí sola las deficiencias que hay se manifiestan las aulas. Sí, en cambio, puede ser una pieza relevante en una estrategia de fortalecimiento global de la educación pública.

Esde esperar, entonces, que este anuncio se concrete con transparencia, en los plazos previstos, con costos razonables y, fundamentalmente, que se integre a un proyecto educativo consistente, que también incluya el incremento de los presupuestos provinciales, hoy incapaces de reforzar la inversión educativa y garantizar el dictado de 180 días de clases.
El declive de la educación pública no serárevertido por la entrega de computadoras personales. Es necesario que este anuncio se integre a un plan consistente de mejora de la educación.
