Children at Liberty City School Get Laptops

The laptops were given by One Laptop Per Child

    More than 525 students at Holmes Elementary in Lliberty City are getting their own technology.

    Adam Porter, 11, said he "couldn't wait for Friday."

    He won't be able to take the laptop home immediately, but his science coach said he would soon. He doesn't have a computer at home, and wants to be a soldier some day.

    Porter admits he's really excited about the games, but that's not all.  He could use some help in "math and science," to "pass the fifth grade," he said.

    The laptops are specially designed for primary school children, and are furnished thanks to One Laptop Per Child, with $245,000 in support from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
