Like the United States, Rwanda is very involved in their education system. They currently have a one child, one laptop plan in place. They are also really good at making sure that the teachers are adhering to teaching standards and providing their pupils with a high quality education and have created benchmarks that the children must reach before they can advance to the next phase of their education.
