Sounded ridiculous at first. However, kids these days are getting laptops, tablets, and smartphones, whether hand-me-downs, gifts, or on loan from the school.
For most towns, where you spend about 20 minutes on the bus, it'* still crazy. However, with a 2½ hour bus ride, it gives kids a chance to work on research papers and such. (Of course we all know they're on Facebook, unless the school put filters on the connection like they do in the building.)
Dodge Ram HD'* come with an optional Wi-Fi hotspot, so I suppose this is the logical next step. If this is an experiment or case study, we'll see if it improves grades/morale/lunch money theft/whatever enough to be worth the expense.
