There is so much wrong here. No money for equipment, books, etc., yet they will give every student a laptop to access porn and other inappopriate web sites. Did it work in Farmington? When they loose there grant, how will they pay to replace these stolen computers? Haven't those teachers had there pay frozen for many years? But now they have expensive toys to play with!

What is wrong is that they had no real technology in the area. having laptops/tablets is a great tool. My kids don't have to carry books when they have all their information on a computer. Books will become obsolete soon. We had to pay a deposit on it but it was next to nothing. Websites can be blocked. That computer can be accessed by a computer administrator any time for scans/viruses and updates. It will lock if the kids keep trying to access inappropriate sites. If used correctly it will certainly set them up for success. I'm just saying.......

Another waste of tax payer money.
When will these parents realize that the only people who benefit off of these expensive ideas are the middle men who sell these crazy ideas to educators and goverment.
Select your teachers well and pay them well to really give a child a real education. Lazy Parents and Teachers do not make children smart.
And so called parents stop having these children just because you can! We have enough children who already go without. Why do we want to see more of them suffer this way of life.

I was educated without internet or computers and have done just fine. More money just being pssed away on the ingrateful prairie monkeys. If we get rid of the reservation system most of the problems will go away.
