Not a moratorium, perhaps, but an understanding that this issue is
fundamental to education. "Desktop computers" is a just one way of
entering the discussion -- and the parallel debate of "desktop
computer" versus "laptop computer" (versus "psp" :) ) -- would get us
to pretty much the same spot.
BTW the Cobb County (Georgia) voted last night to implement the first
phase of their IT Plan (plan 63,000 ibooks, one for every middle and
senior high school student) with the 4 school version. And yes, their
discussions resemble the ones here.
