Maine laptop program

Educators, businesses, students, and parents in Maine have formed a coalition to defend Maine's pioneering as a necessity. "By any measure, the Maine laptop program is a success story," David Brenerman, board chairman of the Maine State Chamber of Commerce and father of a seventh grader, told the Committee on Education and Cultural Affairs. Supporters want the program extended from the 7th and 8th grades to all four high school grades. "I can't imagine going to school and not having a laptop," a seventh grader at Moore Middle School in Portland said.

    iBooks in school

    Can you imagine the impact on kids education if they all iBooks? How much higher would their match scores, reading ability, science comprehension be? Look at the other schools that have done this and compare their success. If they have Macs, it worked great, if they had Wintells, it worked poorly. Think anybody gets it? Let's hope so.
