As a former middle school principal, I strongly disagree with the Baltimore County Public Schools' tentative plans for a five-year, $150 million program to place a laptop or a tablet computer in the hands of every student ("Digital classrooms," Feb. 11).
In fact, I believe it to be absolutely asinine.
Personally, I believe the emphasis in the classrooms should be placed on reading, writing, homework, public speaking and debating in order to prepare the students to be in a better position to communicate with their fellow man in any and all of their future endeavors.
