School Laptop Dropout

Downloading pornography, hacking into businesses, exchanging answers on tests. These are some of the things students are doing across the country with their school laptop computers.

Now, some of those schools are dropping their laptop programs. NewsChannel 10 spoke with both Texico and Highland Park Schools which have school laptop programs.

Texico school officials say there have been a few times when students misused their computers, but overall they're helping students.

Highland Park High School officials say they too have had a few students misuse the laptops, but add the education benefits out weigh any other problems.

Both say they have no plans to drop their laptop programs.
