Mexico seems to have come up with a solution that I think is innovative, inclusive and well, downright brilliant!

The idea is so prefect for a city the size of Mexico and the many families that can’t afford computers or laptops for online learning. Plus, it may engage and educate people of all ages, non students that can now access lessons too!
2020 has been a bust, that is for sure – but some of the imaginative systems that we’ve, through necessary adaptation put in place, I think are awesome!
