Sunday’s MDJ included an article titled “Board of Education’s Scott Sweeney has ties to education tech company.” It states that “one market the company (Promethean) hasn’t broken into is the Cobb County School District.” One could argue that Promethean broke into CCSD quite a few years ago.
While I am unaware of exact numbers, I know quite a few schools in the CCSD have access to Promethean boards. I believe, in fact, that some schools have a Promethean board installed in almost every classroom.
When would the MDJ consider the “untapped” CCSD business threshold broken? Admittedly, my information could be outdated since I have been out of the education profession for almost five years.
That being said, I wonder who was consulting for Promethean back then, since Mr. Sweeney was not yet elected to his first term on the BoE?
