Do read this excellent article from the New York times which emphasizes what I've been saying for long..... The criterion for a country to succeed int his century is education, not war, nor natural resources.

Excerpt: "Add it all up and the numbers say that if you really want to know how a country is going to do in the 21st century, dont count its oil reserves or gold mines, count its highly effective teachers, involved parents and committed students."

And tell me what you thin about all this.

Marseil.
