Taking a Wild Guess a the Underlying Cause of New Tablet Rollout Problems

I really don't know, but it seems to me that people pushing for a new wave of 1-to-1 tablet (or laptop) deployments in schools underestimate how much we just went through a lost decade (or a lost 15 years) in building tech infrastructure and expertise in many districts. From a distance, it just looks like LAUSD and Fort Bend simply had no idea what to do. Insufficient experience, staffing, management, just not enough of anything. I suspect a lot of districts would need about a five year ramp up to really be ready for a big 1-to-1 deployment.
