Equip every pupil with a laptop

In my blogpiece Thoughts for the New Rochester School Chief and Rochester D&C article dtd Dec 2, 2007 (Equip every pupil with a laptop) I had suggested equipping every child with a laptop (of the kind being developed by One Laptop Per Child Foundation in the USD100-200 range for the developing world).

Seems like Birmingham, Alabama is doing exactly that : U.S. city might buy ‘Third World’ laptops.

Would be interesting to see how the program shapes up. It would be great if they could do so without additional burden on taxpayers.

I was pleased to see that my idea is not "pie in the sky" as some detractors in Rochester hd claimed it to be.
