Digital divide bridged in Kansas City

Kansas City, Kansas voted to allow high school students in its district to check out laptops and take them home, reports KCTV5.com:

Half of the students in the district don't have access to a computer at home.

"With the ability to check out laptops, students will engage in higher levels of critical thinking, work to close their own learning gaps, become productive and creative students ready to exit high school college- and career-ready," said Dr. Cynthia Lane, Assistant to the Superintendent for Business and Instructional Support Services.
This? Rocks.
