Question 11Answer
Good afternoon, Mr. President. My name is Patricia Schaeffer and I am the parent of a 4th grade child at Morgantown. My question to you is that in regards to technology. West Virginia, as you pointed out, has shared leadership along with the federal government in providing technology to our students. The question we have is, how do we ensure that technology will be accessible, given the substantial costs involved, to all of our children, especially the children in the rural areas, something that we face a lot here in West Virginia, so that all children will have the opportunity for a quality education using technology, such as we have here at Robert C. Byrd High School? Plug-in
