Context:

In 1994, more than 50% of teachers in the USA had PC's at home, although only 38% of middle school and 44% of high school classrooms were similarly equipped. During the 1993-94 school year more than US$958 million was spent on some 639,000 new PC's for schools.

Counter Claim:

Research shows that far better than sticking kids in front of computers is putting them with caring adults, engaging them in creative play, outdoor experiences with nature, the arts, and hands-on learning of all kinds.
