Thanks, Tom.

I would suggest checking out Christo Sim's Disruptive Fixation: School
Reform and the Pitfalls of Techno-Idealism
Morgan Ames also has a forthcoming book - and many published essays - that
address these issues. Her book is to be titled _The Charisma Machine: The
Life, Death, and Legacy of One Laptop Per Child_.

I'm sure others will have further suggestions.
