    That technology will be well out-dated within 10 years,

    not to mention the maintenance headaches and expenses.

    Will we have do all this again in another 10 years?

    Taking a step in technology needs to be a very well thought out and planned.

    and not a knee-jerk reaction.

    Don't fall for the false propaganda. Most teachers are very good.

    The problems are with the feds.

    Technology may make education more efficient, but it will not improve it alone. Good educators following a good education plan make the difference.

    Here we go again. Just stay out of education completely. Let the districts have local control for what they want to do. Just provide them with more money so they can recruit quality teachers. There is no technology that is more important than a good, caring, competent teacher. We have to pay them what they are worth which in my opinion is their weight in gold.

    Can you imagine giving a tablet to every kid in Utah? What a nightmare that will be for the schools. Constantly breaking, lack of internet connections, not enough staff to fix problems.

    Just send the money to the school and let them get to business.

    What we need is quality teachers and quality texts. These alone should be the focus.

    Our leaders need to budget, not keep raising taxes.
