Akbar Ali, your consideration is not fully explaining what you mean by replacing teachers!
You say they replace them- laptops arent replacing teachers in anyway! teachers would still be teaching, but there would be less stress with grading papers.
Teachers buying laptops, schools would be paying less money in the long run because paper costs more- about 5 packs of loose leaf paper, and about 10-15 of regular printer paper PER CLASSROOM! So buying laptops is less money in general.
I am a student in a westchester school (ny) and i think having laptops would be a big advantage with students and teachers!
it would also help the environment by not wasting as much paper and there would be more forests for animals (trees-> =paper). So I agree with emily
you had spelling errors (a lot).
I BELEIVE THAT THE CHILDREN SHOULD BE ABLE TO HAVE LAPTOPS INSTEAD OF BOOKS. THEY weigh LESS AND TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM OF THE CHILDREN BREAKING THEM, SIMPLY TELL THE PARENTS THAT THEY ARE TO BUY INSURANCE, THERE FOR THE CHILDREN WOULD BE MORE CARFUL. MY DAUGHTER, WHO JUST ENTERED MIDDLE SCHOOL, ALWAYS COMPLAINS OF HAVING TOO MANY BOOKS, AND I KNOW I'M NOT THE ONLY PARENT WHO HAS TO hear THIS. SO, IF WE GET THE LAPTOPS THERE WOULDN'T BE AS MUCH PROBLEM FOR THE CHILD AND WE WOULDN'T HAVE TO HEAR IT. AND BESIDES, I'M SICK AND TIRED OF GOING TO A conference AND HEARING MY CHILD LOST HIS OR HER HOMEWORK ( OR THAT'S WHAT THEY TOLD THE TEACHER). WITH THIS LAPTOP THERE IS REALLY NO EXCUSE!!!
I also agree with you. Sorry I corrected you, I am a language arts teacher and i've been out of work latley.. got to correct someones work :) !
