Computers in School
Sitting in my computer lab at my High School, I notice we just received 35 new computers with all the new attachments as well. Assuming the other 2 computer labs received the same that would mean we spent huge amounts of money on this new equipment. I was in this same computer lab only last week and I can report the computers we had before were operating effectively enough to manage every school assignment.
The amount of money spent on these computers could be saved and used for something else or at a different schools that needed it more.

The fact is most computer equipment is donated by the private sector to the schools, thus outside of the power required to run them and the internet, the cost to the schools is relatively small.
Timberline High School is considered one of the "rich" schools in the Boise School District. Did we really need 35 new computers, when some schools in Idaho dont even have OLD computers to work with? There we have hundreds and hundreds of dollars that could have been saved from our tax revenue.
