Laptops Win Over The Skeptics, Even In Maine

from the it's-all-good dept

Apparently, this is a story that keeps on popping up. We’ve had a few different articles about the program in Maine to give all seventh grade students a laptop, and now the NY Times has their own article saying that
many skeptics of the program have been won over. It seems like, over time, the program has been convincing more people to its benefits. Each article seems increasingly positive about the program. The big worry now, is what will happen when the students complete the eighth grade and the laptops are taken away. People in Maine are hoping that the early successes will convince companies to donate the necessary cash to let students keep the laptops through high school.
