http://www.azcentral.com/offbeat/articles/0216PlayStations16-ON.html

The story in the article isn't so much the problem as the fact that they are setting up the classrooms with playstations, even if they are using "educational" games for them.

Whats more, the article states that they have spent roughly $20,000 on the machines and the games! Even if they are arming each class with a Playstation 2 with about 5 games, the math doesn't seem to make sense (as in it shouldn't cost $20,000 for 23 Playstations and games).

Couple this with the fact that this is just another way for the teacher to get out of teaching, videogames are going to become the new busywork.

Also, could someone point out games on Playstation educational enough
for a school to warrant spending federal funds on, I can't think of any off the top of my head.

GTA series - teaches kids that if they commit crimes such as killing people or doing "it" with "ladies of the night" they'll get arrested... or have to do some kind of wanted level cheat, which, of course doesn't exist in real life.
Back in RF... getting back into the swing of things!

wow if the teachers were that dumb I'd tell them to get RF for math purposes since you can make geo-mod shapes.
