Why Not Here?

Those of you who follow my blog know what I thing about technology and education (Failed Promise) and the use of Social Media (Using Social Media).  One of my high school friends put me on a link to this video via facebook:

A follow-up phone call gave me additional information such as the problems with technology integration and a 9 step process for implementing technology. The remarkable thing is this successful district (Mooresville Graded Schools) is only 40 miles from Rock Hill and they implemented a one-to-one computing system without increasing their district's costs.

And the results? They may overtake the Chapel Hill school district this year as the best in North Carolina. With 40% F&R students, and spending $3,000 less per student - this should shake up the education community.

So, why not in Rock Hill?
