    Just curious–does it talk much about how to fund school technology? That seems like a big roadblock to me…

    It does talk about federal funding for R&D related to the effective use of educational technology. However, it seems to largely focus on (or imply) the reallocation of existing resources.

    It also mentions competitive grants, which seem to be the funding model under the Obama/Duncan led Department of Education.
