It’s pretty well known that the DC public school system is a mess – administratively, educationally, just about an -ly you can come up with. Add technologically to the list. For the second year in a row, they can’t get the computers used for class scheduling and other administrative tasks working.
Over the past few years it’s been amusing to follow the exploits of the IT folks in DC public, although it’s a little less funny when you remember that I, as a federal taxpayer, provided some of the money being wasted.
However, this warrants a good laugh anyway.
This week, the school board will vote on spending $169,125 for routers at 130 schools. The routers should help ease congestion on the computer networks and increase speed, said Barlow, adding that response times have improved because of adjustments made to a server last week.
They have no one over there with enough tech knowledge to figure out they needed routers?
