Toronto school board to stop buying Macs

While the primary motivation for the decision is to cut down on costs, IT decision-makers at the TDSB said the move is actually part of a broader strategy to break away from the traditional approach of “the teacher being the source of all knowledge.”

Wow. Set aside for a moment the issue of Macs and PCs and consider this: the TDSB seems to be letting IT folks force the educational infrastructure away from humans and towards technology. What a scary concept.
