Calif. Teacher Under Fire for Donating Laptops
A California high school teacher is under fire for donating laptops to her students.
Chowchilla Union High School English teacher Kim Kutzner and her husband used their own money to buy 90 computers, but school officials initially removed them from the classroom. They expressed concern that the equipment wasn't purchased and approved by the district. The computers have been returned to Kutzner's classroom until district officials make a final decision.
Kutzner insists the computers are safe and have no Internet connection. She says the technology has improved student morale and test scores.
