More lap top program reactions

From eSchool News...

State laptop plan prompts mixed reaction
Some South Dakota educators say they're not interested in the governor's laptop computer proposal

The Link

It's obvious that getting lap tops into the hands of high schoolers, particularly those who would normally have access to them, is probably a good thing.

But, as usual, the devil is in the details. Some schools employees are complaining about the percentage of the costs that the district are going go to have to kick in for this program and would like the money added to the state aid formula.

There also appears to be no money set aside for training, software and maintenance??
