The article “Dr. Warschauer visits East and Hopkins” by Dan Maas matters because Dr. Warschauer thinks “computers are a waste of money, and that students should be learning important skills like writing and reading rather than wasting time on computers” which is totally barbaric. Dr. Warschauer is stuck in the past when computers were not as advanced and convenient and books were the only thing they really had. Computers are not a waste of time because they prepare us for the future because they give us an advantage over other schools that do not have the privileges of using computers in school. In conclusion computers are a big part of my academic success and are not a waste of time and money.
