Hailed as a crowning achievement that brings high-speed Internet into classrooms across the state, the Idaho Education Network has disintegrated into a high-profile mess.
A judge has thrown out the $60 million network contract. Districts have been scrambling to keep their schools online. The state is pouring tax money into the project as a stopgap-- while trying to figure out a plan for the long haul.
What does the future hold for broadband in the schools-- and for technology in the classroom?
Come hear from Governor Butch Otter's aide on the issue. And hear two superintendents talk about how technology is changing their schools-- and what's at stake in the broadband debate.
