Schools levy for Kevin Rudd's laptop plan
Posted by: Justina Spencer
A PUBLIC school is asking parents to pay up to $1460 to lease computers provided under Kevin Rudd's digital schools plan, while another is urging parents to buy the Apple Mac laptops their child has used for $1200.

After Labor promised to provide access to a computer for every child from Year 9 to Year 12 at the last election, it has emerged that a public school in South Australia, Seaford 6-12 School, is charging a $365-a-year fee to allow students to take the taxpayer-funded computers home.
