Oppenheimer, Todd. “The Computer Delusion.”
Atlantic Monthly July 1997: 3
The Kittridge Street Elementary School, in Los Angeles, killed its music program last year to hire a technology coordinator; in Mansfield, Massachusetts, administrators dropped proposed teaching positions in art, music, and physical education, and then spent $333,000 on computers; in one Virginia school the art room was turned into a computer laboratory.
(Ironically, a half dozen preliminary studies recently suggested that music and art classes may build the physical size of a child’s brain, and its powers for subjects such as language, math, science, and engineering—in one case far more than computer work did.)
