Upgrade or perk?

To the Editor:

Even though the April referendum failed, School District 156 found the money to upgrade its decade-old computers to Macbook Air laptops and iPads for teachers.

Might somebody have suggested less expensive desktop computers and maybe spent some money on the student computer labs or the library? Laptops and tablets are very mobile devices and could be taken home for personal use.

Did District 156 upgrade their technology or just teachers’ perks at the taxpayers’ expense. Still wondering why the referendum failed!
