Darien, Conn. parents urged the Board of Education not to cut spending for school technology at a public hearing Tuesday.
"Technology is an integral part of the learning that goes on each day in our schools," said Susan Vogel, co-chair of the Council of Darien School Parents.
Darien has proposed spending $407,000 next year on technology. Vogel pointed out that 79 percent of this is for maintenance and upgrades to existing infrastructure. She also said that Darien is at the bottom of the list for area schools in terms of technology investment.
