Mississippi Gov. Ronnie Musgrove is taking the first step to craft a plan to put computers in every public school classroom and connect them to the internet by 2002: He's forming a task force he will cochair with state Superintendent of Education Richard Thompson.
"It's something that I support very strongly. I'm willing to chair this effort to make sure it happens," said Musgrove, who highlighted the priority in his Feb. 9 State of the State address.
The plan "is fairly specific, and we have been working very diligently to put a computer in every classroom," Musgrove said.
