Money and Education

Camille Paglia writes of President-elect Obama's public works proposals:
I gulped when Obama also pledged educational reform by putting state-of-the-art computers in every classroom. Groan. Computers alone will never solve the educational crisis in this country: They are tools and facilitators, not primary conveyors of knowledge.
"State-of-the-art computers in every classroom" are expensive and, I agree with Ms. Paglia, nearly useless as an educational tool. This is an excellent example of a liberals thinking that problems will go away if they just throw money at them.

PREVIOUSLY, the issue of "throwing money" was discussed here.
