Laptopy dla uczniów kurzą się w magazynach. Nic nie można z nimi zrobić

These laptops will not go to students. The government does not want to clean up after its predecessors

Over 10 thousand laptops for students are gathering dust in warehouses. However, you cannot do anything with them because the law does not allow it.

The laptop program for students was implemented by the previous government. Each fourth-grader was to be provided with a portable computer to be used for learning. However, over 10 thousand laptops are gathering dust in warehouses and, according to the law, nothing can be done with them – TVN24 reports.

Laptops for students are gathering dust in warehouses

It turns out that schools misestimated the need for computers. Transferring students between schools is also partly a problem. As a result, over 10 thousand laptops have been returned and are gathering dust in warehouses. In theory, they could be used in school computer rooms, but this is impossible because the law does not allow it.

Over 10,000 computers that were to be donated under the “Laptop for a student” program have returned to the warehouse of the Scientific and Academic Computer Network (NASK). I am very hurt by the fact that in this rush, in this lack of preparation, the Act on Laptops does not provide for what can be done with the computers that will be returned.

– Deputy Minister of Digital Affairs Dariusz Standerski told TVN24.

The Deputy Minister of Digital Affairs believes that it is a waste, because the computers could be left in schools and used in computer rooms, which are often outdated. School principals even have to ask about it. However, the ministry cannot agree to this because the authors of the act did not provide for such a possibility. According to the law, unused laptops must be returned, so now they lie in warehouses and nothing can be done with them.

It is worth recalling that in the case of laptops for students, the new government notified the prosecutor’s office about the possibility of committing a crime. The previous government, among other things, did not secure money for the implementation of the program. This was financed from the state budget, but the amount was later to be recovered from the European Union. The thing is that the European Commission did not agree to the government’s proposals and there was a hole in the budget. The program has been canceled and the KO government is working on a new project.
