Hungary Last In Digital Literacy
Hungarian students finished in last place among European countries and in 29th place among 34 countries in digital text comprehension, according to a PISA survey conducted in 2012. The results were released only now because Hungarian researchers did not believe that pupils here are so weak. According to the report, Hungarian schools use outdated computers and internet access is limited.

The situation is even worse in households that lack computers or internet access, as schools cannot compensate for that.

A reduction in the number of information science classes is connected to the Orbán cabinet and in addition it is traditionally typical of the Hungarian school system that internet use is not incorporated into the other public knowledge subjects.
