What????

What???? If NHC is receiving more lottery money than Pender, then why aren't all the classes "real" 21st century classes with technology and computers for every student in all classrooms with a working system that actually stays up for more than an hour a day free of viruses and shut-downs? A paperless school generates a lot less waste than other "traditional" schools. In one Brunswick county school, there are only 4 computers in the media center. You cannot take an entire class to the library to do decent Internet research for classwork. There is only one computer that works in a class that I currently work in; it's sad. Students have better technology in their I-pods than the school does. But I guess it's par for the course for a state whose claim to fame was the state government paying themselves instead of using funds (taxes)raised to build the first public school. The first school did not get built until a few years later. It's good to see the importance our lawmakers still place on education funding today, nothing has changed.
