They must be trying to make up a few thousand of that by selling used laptops at 50 dollars a pop.
Instead of the QEA paying for a doomed merit pay scheme this is exactly the type of thing, laptops for poor students, they should be financing.
Also I take the internet for granted and have easy access to it but you know doesn't? The families that would most benefit from the laptop sell.
Finally fifty dollars isn't a lot to me but you know who it is a lot to? The families that could use the laptops the most.
So Dear Duval, thanks but you could and should be doing better.
