When $100 Laptops Are Shipped to School Districts?

California students don't have textbooks in some of our inner city schools. This didn't just happen in light of the huge amounts we now owe to China and Japan to finance Bush's pre-emptive war in Iraq. It's been going on for a long time.

Can children without books compete effectively with children who are provided with books. Some middle class school districts are now requiring that every student have a personal computer. But the districts aren't providing the computers. They're asking the parents to do that, and asking the parents who can buy computers to purchase computers for those who can't.

How's this going to fit into No Child Left Behind? The $100 Laptop, in the references below, will give you some ideas. Please read the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs.)

Then when every child has the $100 Laptop, what about access to all these books? How is that going to be accomplished? And who's going to be left behind then?
