Paid for by whom? The press release doesn’t say. In fact, it doesn’t say much at all. Here it is, straight from GCS:
Welborn Students Receive Netbooks, [Wednesday, November 4th] 6:30 p.m. (Welborn Academy of Science and Technology, 1710 McGuinn Drive, High Point) – Welborn Academy will be distributing Netbook computers to about 160 of its magnet program students on Wednesday. The students will be able to keep the Netbooks for the school year and use them much like textbooks. The magnet focus for Welborn Academy is science and technology, and the use of these Netbooks will allow students better hands-on experience in the area of technology.
