Lindsey Tepe was quoted by the Associated Press on the challenges of implementing technology initiatives in schools:

Many schools around the country have stories of successful technology initiatives, and one lesson from other districts is the importance of getting parents as excited as teachers, according to Lindsey Tepe, a policy analyst at the nonpartisan New America think tank in Washington, D.C.

“This huge shift we’re seeing in classrooms around the country increasing the use of new technologies is going to be bumpy in places that aren’t laying a groundwork,” Tepe said.
