Classrooms for the Future had their funding cut completely
Posted by: Justina Spencer
In his fifth-grade classroom, Alex Schaefer made a virtual pizza this week - part pepperoni, part bacon, part mushroom.

At Scranton's Robert Morris Elementary and dozens of schools in the area, students learn about equivalent fractions and other math skills on interactive, computerized whiteboards.

The program used to purchase the whiteboard on which Alex built his pizza was one of the biggest losses of the state education budget passed last week.

Though the technology program was eliminated and cuts were made to tutoring and professional development, area superintendents agree - it could have been a lot worse.
