If you checked out my “About Me” section, then you know I teach middle school. I am passionate about eduction. I have wanted to create a petition to the White House asking for all schools to be provided with a computer for each student they have for a long time. I finally did it tonight!
I don’t necessarily think all kids should have a computer to take home with them. Seeing how quickly kids can beat up a computer in the classroom lets me know that sending them home might be a recipe for disaster. Still, I would love to have a classroom set that I could pull out on a daily basis.
It makes me sad to think that I cannot guarantee the use of computers in my classroom. I am lucky to be at a great school that has just gone though a technology refresh, but even with these new computers and laptops, it is still more than a pain than it should be for me to get my kids hands on a keyboard.
Please take a second to follow the link below, sign up for the site, and sign my petition. I need to get 150 signatures to even show up on the main site, so every signature help!
