One board member lamented to QConfidential that there were 17 schools with broken computers that just cant be fixed because they are evidence in the case against former Superintendent Celistine Miller.
"We have a lot of computers that cant be touched," said Stephen Jones, a member of SB 29. "Our teachers will just have to go back to the basics and teach without the aid of computers."
