President Barack Obama cited once again education in Korea as an exemplary model, while emphasizing digitalization of classrooms. Visiting a middle school in the state of North Carolina on Thursday, President Obama said, “Only around 20 percent of our students have access to true high-speed Internet in their classroom, while South Korea has 100 percent of its kids with high-speed Internet,” stressing once again, “We`ve got 20 percent; South Korea 100 percent. ” He instructed his administration to enable 99 percent of American students to access to high-speed Internet within five years.
