Schools expect going wireless will cost a lot

In the not-so-distant future, the city's schools will have full wireless access, and students will bring their own laptops to school, administrators said Monday night. Full Story

oh yeah....wireless is necessary for education. Do the bright ideas of these educators ever end? Of course computer skills are necessary today, but is wireless access?? Maybe if the teachers had to kick in some money, wireless would suddenly not be necessary. Wait and see how this will be messed up!

We have schools with leaking roofs, but wireless is somehow necessary??

What happens to the student who does not have a laptop? If you have 4 kids do they all need a laptop? Who is responsible if they are stolen?

If Mike Cummings is involved then it will cost the parents major money and will totally be a messed up situation. But then again, everything Cummings has touched seems to get messed up.
By the way, it says "wireless will cost a lot" but, isn't this the same Milford that had all the funding problems in the paper last year?

Wireless is junk for this kind of setting, a waste of money, all they need is one accesspoint in the class room, they presumably already have wired access into the rooms, just slap an accesspoint in there and be done with it. Idiots.

WIreless is totally unnecessary but the BOE whines and gets everything they want so will try for it and probably get it. Of course, the people can't afford the taxes and probably the laptops so it will be another useless thing in the school system - along with some of the administrators who will probably suggest the taxpayer pay for those that cannot afford the laptops.

Let's see how many of the samn posters cry in the not so distant future - when the method of "wire" transmission changes - and you need to re-wire the whole school. Obviously the "techno-telligence" of the above posters - is sub-par
