She said equipping each school with distance-learning technology would cost about $20,000, but it would save millions of dollars in school construction and transportation costs.It is amazing when you think of it that way, isn't it? $20,000 is nothing these days.
In my very small college, we used to offer French. We don't offer it any more because we only had two students who took it the last time it was offered. If we could make distance learning a normal part of what we do, it would be easy for the students who want to take French to do it. It would require technology, but even more, it would require a mindset that we don't have yet. I congratulate West Virginia on electing a governor who is on the ball -- at least on this point.
