Idaho's Senate Education Committee on Tuesday advanced a revised bill to provide more funding for school technology. State education chief Tom Luna is proposing that the state's scarce school funding be used to maximize the use of technology in classrooms. The latest version of the proposal removes a provision to increase class sizes, but it allows districts to divert some funding for teacher salaries to pay for technology upgrades. It also would designate teachers as the first to receive laptops and additional technology training.
