Description

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution looks at the amount of funds wasted in expensive technology among Atlanta Public Schools. The school system purchased pricey equipment and installed a high-priced unnecessary network for the Internet. The district purchased everything in response to a national program called, E-rate, a program that helps schools initiate an Internet infrastruce, but does not purchase the actual computers. Reporters discovered that the school district spent a lot of money on equipment they didn't need or couldn't use. Because the schools did not take bids, they were often overcharged and chose the most expensive Internet and network components.
