The topic is: even if we're pro-computer (which the original ranter is not necessarily) w/r to their value in education, that doesn't mean we see thirty computers crammed together in a "computer lab" as necessarily a great idea, not ideal for the teacher either. Other models exist.
And yes, I realize there's a bit of an artificial either/or going on here. Having computer labs and having safe spaces for individualized study, are not mutually exclusive options.
Have both why not?
But when it comes to priorities, I'd say each student needs a safe personal space to call their own and a "locker" does not constitute an adequate solution.
