As advances in technology race ahead, we must ensure that the nation’s students become technologically literate. Not to meet this challenge will mean that American students will only fall further and further behind.
With reading, writing, and arithmetic, technology has become the nation’s “new basic.” Our children’s future, the future economic health of the nation, and the competence of America’s future workforce depend on our meeting this challenge.
