What do you do when a monitor/keyboard breaks, leaving you
with 24 seats for a class of 25 ?   Or worse, a CPU unit, leaving
you with 20 seats for a class of 25 ?

This is a problem faced in every deployment of technology in
schools.   What about the kid that lost his textbook(s) ?

I'd love to hear some educators thoughts on handling this dilemma.
