Superintendent Deasy wants to give each L.A. Unified student a high-tech device. That would mean 700,000 pieces of digital equipment costing about $450 million, not counting more than $200 million (and possibly double that) to update the campus' wireless Internet service. But his plan needs work.
Deasy's request for a first-phase infusion of $17.4 million in school bond money fell short by one vote.The vote was only advisory, and the school board could still approve the expenditure, but for now Deasy's office says he has no plans to bring it up again, and that's a good idea.
