I think one of the factors is the constant tug on technology coordinators between administration and the teaching staff. In addition, school districts, particularly smaller, rural districts are terribly understaffed for technology support. The technology coordinator, therefore, spends his or her day troubleshooting and problem solving, with little time to plan initiatives or promote technology use for instruction. I've also found that there is often little understanding on behalf of school administrators in terms of what the technology coordinator is doing to support the school, the value of having a skilled technology coordinator on staff, and how important it is to have the technology coordinator as a key player on both the administrative and instructional teams.

This student has some very powerful things to say about public education, and I have to say I agree with most of them. I would be curious to know if he views his school library media center in the same positive way (if his school still has one)?
