The Advocate of Stamford, Conn., reports on a local Catholic school that managed to upgrade its outdated computers with money from grants and tireless fund-raising efforts. A year ago, the school president was asked to spend $90,000 on technology, but was given no actual money. A student’s parents ended up donating money for laptops, and IBM matched the gift 5-to-1 in hardware. The school was also able to spend some of the $134,000 raised in its annual fund-raising drive.
