My nation’s principal leader, President George W. Bush, has cut to $0, once again, federal funding for Enhancing Education Through Technology (E2T2) program. Bush’s FY07 Budget Proposal, for the 2nd year, has zeroed out E2T2 funding. Last year, through heroic lobbying by CoSN and many others, the $500 million dollar program was cut to only $272 million.
To me, it’s simple. How do we prepare our children for their future, when we aren’t even afforded today’s information technologies? I must be missing something, because George Bush is surely a smarter man than me.
