High School Students To Get Laptops

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — Maryland’s senators have announced a $30,000 grant to Hancock High School’s Laptop Initiative.

Sens. Barbara Mikulski and Benjamin Cardin said Thursday that the grant from the Appalachian Regional Commission also means 36 teachers at the Washington County school will get laptops.

The initiative intends to teach students advanced technology skills. It also seeks to increase computer and Internet
accessibility among low-income and rural students.

    What, books aren’t good enough of a learning tool? What happen to good old fashion learning with your brain. If the laptop gets lost or stolen, who’s responsible for replacement if that low income family can’t afford it. Gee, pencils, paper etc worked just fine for us.

    Hey, why not. We pass out condoms & teen pregnancy is at a all time high in addition to STD. Let them use the laptops for video games, porn etc. They should be brilliant future students like Charles Manson was.
