New York voters approve $2 billion borrowing for school technology
New Yorkers approved borrowing $2 billion for classroom technology such as laptops, high-speed broadband and interactive white boards. Voters passed the Smart Schools Bond Act by 62 percent to 38 percent yesterday, according to preliminary results from the Associated Press. Proceeds may also be used to build classrooms for pre-kindergarten programs, replace trailers with permanent space and install security systems. "I want the kids to be caught up with technology and be able to compete in the marketplace when they're older," said Rory Anderson, a 58-year-old social worker in Harlem.
