Birmingham's education revolution

Birmingham, Alabama, USA City Council is poised to purchase 15,000 XOs for $200 each, one for every child in grades one through eight. Total purchase = $7 million. Source

Very significant to me that a whole region (Birmingham city schools) in an industrialised nation has taken this step.

I'm not going to get too excited until the money is actually allocated.
