Converse College, School District 7 go big with innovative ideas for education

 

As you've probably read in the news (informed citizen that you are), Converse College announced yesterday a huge 43 percent cut to its tuition, making national headlines in the process. 

 

Also this week, Spartanburg School District 7 started distributing Macbook Air laptops to its high school students, following a decision made in April to put laptops in the hands of all middle and high school students, and provide iPads for students in grades 3-5.
