Technology is the cure for what ails you—at least as far as learning in the public school classroom goes. So goes the argument from Santa Fe Public Schools administrators, who want the Board of Education to approve a 1.5 mill levy tax so that the district can spend some $50 million to $55 million over five years to make Santa Fe schools technology smart.
It’s a lot of money, but it will be spread over all district public schools, district charter schools and the New Mexico School for the Arts. Superintendent Joel Boyd believes it’s the job of the district to support all of Santa Fe’s children in public schools. That’s an admirable sentiment.
