New Jersey School District Abandons Student Laptop Program

New Jersey School District Abandons Student Laptop Program

HOBOKEN – The Hoboken School District has decided to abandon its one-to-one laptop program for the 7th-9th grades due to unexpected issues with the program, despite it being federally funded.

“We had the money to buy them, but maybe not the best implementation,” said Mark Toback, the current superintendent of Hoboken School District, according to The Hechinger Report. “It became unsustainable.”

Superintendents and principals around the country are scraping together any budget possible to buy more computers for their classrooms. This year alone, schools are projected to spend almost $10 billion on education technology, a $240 million increase from 2013, according to The Hechinger Report.
