- The Economist Debate Series: Education. The Opposition’s opening statement. Robert B. Kozma, PH.D. October 14, 2007 - "There have been numerous studies from around the world which have appeared in the popular press that show no relationship between computer availability or use and student test scores, such as the study by Banks, Cresswell, and Ainley in Australia (2003) and the study by Dynarski, et al., in the U.S. (2007). There have even been studies that show a negative relationship between computer use and learning, such as the Fuchs and Woessmann OECD study (2004) and the Wenglinsky study in the U.S. (1998)."
