Terri Rice's curator insight, October 23, 2014 9:25 PM

Danielle, I think this topic is extremely hot right now. Unfortunately, it is not just parents who should foot the bill. These devices are pricey, yet school districts probably are not considering that as much as the adult board members simply are not tech savvy enough to grasp the dire need for this training.

My idea is stop funneling lottery monies to higher education and bring it down to the level of elementary and middle school age.

  That way, funds can be used for initial equipment and upgrades as well. If parents are affluent enough to afford it, great, but everyone gambles, so why not insist on those funds going to the children who get funds cut all the time. Higher Ed can definitely survive without this revenue, but obviously our children, who are the future, absolutely cannot.

 Just one mom's opinion.

If we start any young child early they have the capabilities of making great things happen as adults.Technology is the way of the future and can help cure disease.
