Technology and ‘bang for the buck’

While I was wandering around the Kershaw County Farmer's Market on a recent Saturday, I struck up a conversation with a community member about technology in schools.

School began in August. In a matter of minutes, not one thread of clothing was dry. In fact, at lunch, when allowed, I went home, took a bath, changed clothes ...
