California’s proposed budget would eliminate key technology programs.

The ed-tech group Computer Using Educators (CUE) Inc.’s Board of Directors passed a resolution in support of the California Technology Assistance Project (CTAP) and the Statewide Educational Technology Services (SETS) project, both of which are in danger of being unfunded and eliminated from California’s proposed budget.

“CTAP is the only statewide technology program in place in California. Along with SETS, CTAP funding assures districts and teachers that they have the tools, the training and the proper resources for educating 21st century students,” said Robert Craven, CUE board president. “This is especially critical when Common Core standards are being implemented. The technology must be there and must be functional so that testing is accurate and is not disrupted. To implement an entirely new system without a solid infrastructure is worrying. We could not believe in this more strongly.”
