The introduction of technology and new media into schools is controlled by the schools themselves.

No, technology continues to be worth the cost in education systems. In the business world, familiarity with technology is extremely important. Those who are comfortable with technology have respect and job security. Schools cannot take this mandate too seriously. Technology should be incorporated in everyday learning, as well as taught independently as a separate subject. This prepares students for the real world.
