Alternate Hypothesis

If education as an industry has the lowest intensity of IT use, might that not indicate that the IT companies working in education have done a terrible job? The list of six, seven, and eight figure disasters in educational infrastructure projects is not short. Whose fault is that?

We need better schools, sure, but better IT too.

So, is it the fault of IT for offering crappy products and solutions that don't live up to the hype?

Or is it that we have too many administrators who believe all that they are promised and buy the crappy products?

Or maybe that a large number of teachers have heard all the miracle claims far too many times and are refusing to drink the kool-aid this time around?

Let's face it - there's more than enough blame to go around.
