The School of Hard Drives: Interview with Arne Duncan

This interview is for a special issue on education and technology, so let me start by asking you about computers in classrooms.  As the secretary of education, do you think every kid in America needs a computer?

I think every student needs access to technology, and I think technology can be a hugely important vehicle to help level the playing field. Whether it’s in an inner-city school or a rural community, I want those students to have a chance to take A.P. biology and A.P. physics and marine biology.

What does that have to do with having a computer?

We have thousands of students today taking online classes. We actually have virtual schools today.
