School priorities

November 5, 2000


To the editor:

$1,115 each for 200 computers? Plus the additional support staff that's needed. Holy smoke! What are they buying? That's up in the PIII 800 mHz range for fully loaded systems.

Now I'm fully behind helping teachers out but do they REALLY need almost state-of-the-art computer systems for writing tests, grade logs and eMail capability? Maybe I've missed the point completely. I'm willing to listen but in my opinion let's spend less on computers (and support staff) and more on salaries and benefits!

John Hamm,
