But I bought my own computer...

18th February 2000 at 00:00
WHILE I am delighted by the thought that the Government wishes to help teachers acquire computers, I too have noticed the odd price differentials, made even worse when one considers purchasing software at the educational discount available.

However, a vital point has been missed by our poliical masters (and mistresses). The use of computers by teachers in school has been driven by the thousands of us who have purchased machines of our own over the years to improve our skills. What recompense might there be for us?
