Education, Law Finesse

I was compulsively browsing the ‘net a few minutes ago when I came across this:

Romney’s proposal […] calls for spending $54 million to equip about a half million students — every Massachusetts student in the sixth through 12th grades — with a low-budget laptop. His plan, unveiled last week, depends on the availability of a laptop costing about $100, similar to one being developed by MIT.

My questions: with schools without money to run being taken over by the state, where would this hypothetical $54 million go, if we were to put it to saving the schools? What do the tests say about education benefits, and how does it affect handwriting?
