NOTE: This is part of my "continuing effort" to document some of the tremendous pressures that are upon "Higher Education" (where many of the K-12 individuals documented below will be hopefully heading in the future).

The visuals were created from data reported for "Technology in U.S. Public Schools" extracted from various editions of The World Almanac and Book of Facts: 1995 edition, page 221; 1997 edition, page 251; 1998 edition, page 217; and 1999 edition, page 239.

Earlier references dealing with technology and changes in education may be found at http://www.csuchico.edu/~curban/Jan'98_Millennium_Paper.html; as stated in the paper:

"Dramatic" changes will come about because the very environment of the next twenty-five years will be radically altered as a result of the electronic revolution upon us; and although I remain positive, please consider the 1996 words of Winn Schwartau, a cyberspace expert:

"Colleges and universities will be replaced with a higher educational database that provides personally tailored interactive instruction and testing." Winn Schwartau, 1996, Information Warfare: Cyberterrorism: Protecting Your Personal Security in the Electronic Age (NY: Thunder's Mouth Press), page 660.
