Hold yer nose and vote, part 1

I will have to do that tomorrow morning. Our school district has a technology bond up for tomorrow. I am totally unsure about whether to vote yes or no on this bond.

Our school district *needs* new computers and “stuff”. I certainly hope that they aren’t still using the old Apple castoffs that were installed (one to a classroom or something like that) back in the 1990s when the beach urchins were in elementary school and the GG was on the district’s technology committee*. Back in those days, we were in the beginnings of outfitting our schools for the online information age. You know, the age that allows me to actually have a career in something that wasn’t even dreamed of back when I graduated from college back in the 1970s. But that would be a whole ‘nother story.

What to do… Do I vote for the bond even though that at this stage of the game, I think that up-to-date computer equipment should be standard in every building in the school district and, therefore a part of the regular budget. I have a lot of things to say about this but probably not tonight. We’ll see how I vote tomorrow. But I am gonna vote. Make no mistake!!!

* I remember when the GG was serving on that technology committee and the district was advertising jobs. Someone asked the GG why he didn’t apply. Answer? You can’t afford me. Hee. But make no mistake, this did not mean that we were in the 1%… Never!!

    My SD laptop is at least 5 years old, maybe more like 7. We are expected to take attendance and do grades on it, so I’m terrified that it will die. (and that there is no plan or money to help me out)
