Q [Martha]: This is a fantastic idea, but what about tech 
support? surely the computers--hardware or software--might 
go haywire at some point.

A: I believe in "Kid Power." Our education systems 
underestimate kids. It INFANTALIZES them by assuming they 
are incompetent. An eight-year old is capable of doing 90% 
of tech support and a 12 year old 100%. And this is not 
exploiting the children: it is giving them a powerful 
learning experience.
