Classrooms for the Future, a Pennsylvania Department of Education program, will give 152 high schools laptops for 2008/2009. The program annually grants funds to high schools to expand technology. This year the program will give out a total of $45 million. Program spokesman Michael Race says the two years of the program have been a success with kids demonstrating enthusiasm to learn by using new technology. The money is doled out according to need, enrollment, and the level of technology a school currently has in place. 10 Allegheny County school districts are set to receive some of the funds.
