Hardly any magic there. Only in peoples minds. Technology is a much abused
and misused term. 


I am just suggesting that schools could avoid the expense of purchasing
equipment that in time becomes dated if there was a method of leasing

I am concerned that funding will only go to the larger schools that have the
numbers to justify the expenditure of money on equipment.

It would be nice to swap that old metal lathe with an up to date machine.

technical equipment such as lathes and welders through the department?
