Why don't we give the GDP of France to the schools for new technology? Would that be sufficient? Probably not.

No amount of money is ever sufficient for schools. They always want more and more and more. If schools got zillions more, they would still complain about insufficient funding.

Much of this high-tech money will be wasted on schools whose teachers have no idea how to use it to improve the academic performance of their students. Toys, toys and more toys. It's like buying high-definition, big screen TV sets for blind people.
