Since the e-school program started in June last year, 350,000 laptops have been delivered. The figures are from the Ministry of Public Works, Transport and Communications, which reveals in a statement how the delivered laptops were distributed: 70 thousand were given to teachers, 140 thousand to students and 140 thousand to graduates of the New Opportunities Program.
The statement also reacts to the news published yesterday by the press, which accounted for the existence of 135 complaints received at Deco, as a result of the delays in the delivery of the laptops acquired through this route.
The Government admits that «some complaints were registered, for various reasons, with consumer protection organizations», but underlines that they represent a low rate compared to the total number of equipment, around 0.5 per thousand.
In the press release, MOPTC also guarantees that, as an Anacom survey attested, levels of satisfaction with the e-school program is high and that the pace of delivery of the equipment remains, including for beneficiaries of the social action regime.
As for the complaints, it is added that these have been attended to and in some cases «have even allowed improvements to be made, in a program that involves several entities».
