Low Cost Laptop Bill

There is a house bill that recently got to third reading(the final reading before vote if I remember correctly) that, "Creates the Children's Low-cost Laptop Act. Requires the State Board of education to establish a procedure and develop criteria for the administration of a low-cost laptop pilot project whereby low-cost laptop computers are provided to each student, teacher, and relevant administrator in a participating elementary school and the use of open-source educational software and computer skills training is implemented." If so inclined, you can read the full text at

I think as a chapter we should do a letter(email) writing campaign for the passing of this legislation to all of the senators and representatives in Springfield.Jrock 23:30, 20 March 2008 (EDT)
