The article presents information on how to find technology funding for public schools in the U.S. Thanks to the "No Child Left Behind Act" and an increased emphasis on improving and tracking student performance, the use of technology in U.S. public schools has become more of an asset than ever. But even as schools strive to strengthen their technology programs, economic conditions and budgetary constraints often make it difficult to fund these programs. The first step is to establish an advisory group to develop a long-term technology plan. The group should be diverse, including administrators, teachers, parents, community members, students and representatives from local businesses and colleges.
