Way to go Birmingham!

The City of Birmingham is going to invest in computers for all of the school children in their city!  Eschool News reported this story today.

  • Birmingham took another step closer to becoming the first entity in the United States to purchase $200 laptop computers from the nonprofit One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) Foundation.  Birmingham’s city council has approved a $3.5 million plan to provide schoolchildren with 15,000 low-cost laptops produced by foundation.

The city council also allocated $500,000 to the school district to sort out any technical issues in the purchase of the laptops.

What a great investment by the city.  Sounds like a forward thinking city council to me!
