Michigan teacher laptop initiative falls short of expectations

The Flint Journal reports that some teachers who received laptop computers as part of Michigan’s 2001 Teacher Technology Initiative never bothered to use them and others made minimal use of them. The program recently came to a close, and critics question whether or not it was worth the $110 million invested by the state. Some districts have taken the laptops away from teachers and given them to students.
