Internet Access in U.S. Public Schools and Classrooms: 1994-2003 - This report provides an excellent background on Internet access in schools nationwide, with statistics grouped around the areas of (1) school connectivity; (2) student access to computers and the Internet; (3) school Web sites; (4) technologies and procedures to prevent student access to inappropriate material on the Internet; and (5) teacher professional development on how to integrate use of the Internet into the curriculum. The report states that in 2003, nearly 100% of public schools and 93% of classrooms had Internet access, while 8% of all public schools provided students with laptop computers. Public schools more likely to lend laptops to students were secondary schools, those with fewer than 300 pupils and rural schools.
