Re: Like fugging DUH ! well hold on, you make it sound that there are no advantages to a laptop in high school. Of course the potential for abuse is there, but you have to look at the other side as well. In my county they were contemplating to implement this idea but since I think they have scrapped it, I don't know.
A great idea was to have the laptops and store the textbooks on usb flash drives. I think that's a pretty good idea: instead of having poor and damaged books that cost a lot of money, have a cheap flash drive with a PDF file of the text book. Saves on books and buying new editions, and is cheap to replace.
