The question is should we want laptops for Haiti kids?

I believe technology is important for advancment of society is important but to much of a good thing can ruin you as well. I look at the effects of lap tops and texting has on American kids and it is sad. Their penmanship is poor, they cant spell cause everything has a spell check, they rely on abbreviations, writing has turned into copying and pasting, and the knowledge becomes disposable.

I would rather education at the primary school level be handled the old fashion way.
