Willard Model Elementary School is a model to other schools across the nation. They have been joining the school's curriculum with technology from the money the state has given them which helps the students write before they can actually spell.

Surveys have been conducted to see how technology affects learning. Teachers recommend spending an hour a day for the computer based lessons to be truly effective.

These goals are not easy to accomplish because of the cost of a computer, a computer lab could cost up to $13 thousand dollars or more in 1993. Congress, consisting of the House of Representatives and the Senate, are willing, and ready, to give education a combined amount of $888 million. All we have to do is wait for the bills to pass, and we may not have that much time.

We need to keep up with today's fast growing, modern technology. Today, the priority in our schools has to be technology because the success or failure of classroom technology is placed on our teachers training, if they ever get it.
