If you think I am overly critical of the inertia of education in providing Internet access to students, I refer you to the August 05 report here by the Pew Internet & American Life Project. I read it to say this: sure kids have sometime and token Internet access at school, but why is this true (quoting the report)?:
About one in five online teens (18%) who use the internet from multiple locations list school as the location where they go online most often. This figure is up from 11% in December 2000.
Overall the report certainly does not show students are provided with the Internet as a primary tool at school, which is what should happen.
