Where's that "On" Switch Again?

Out on the left coast, they're having a few computer glitches, and LA teachers are now in the unenviable position of having to sue their school district to get paid. It appears the 95 million dollar computer system needs to straighten out a few kinks before it's roadworthy.

Meanwhile, NYC is looking at a mere 80 million dollar system to track student progress. Now that appears kind of chintzy, particularly when compared with LA. But its potential is still impressive.

Will the class clown get that full scholarship to Harvard, despite his 45% average? Will the school valedictorian end up taking night classes at Queensborough Community College?

Will Chancellor Klein close Stuyvesant and Bronx Science for failing to meet standards? The possibilities are endless.
