I think kid internet access is improving. Helps with SmartMusic

We never order SmartMusic for every single student.
It makes no sense to order two subscriptions for a house that only has one computer. It makes no sense to order a subscription for a house that has no internet connection.
Send out the system requirements for SmartMusic and then do a survey. Ask how many will be able to do this at home. That will give you a better idea of how many to order than a straight-up head count.
I thought we could guess. We have a couple years of experience.
Nope. That doesn't work because kids are getting better access at home. Parents need a system to keep connected and pay the bills. My ratio of haves and have-nots was off by 20 kids. Nice problems to have in a down economy.
The Post Office loses out when parents get the home internet connected machine, but it helps our kids with better access.
