HEY BIG SPENDER: New York has released plans to spend $43 million on technology upgrades for 36 of the state's school districts, the AP reports for the Wall Street Journal. The money comes out of the nearly $2 billion Smart Schools Bond Act voted into law in 2014. The money will support buying classroom technology ($22.8 million, internet connectivity ($12.9 million), cybersecurity and other security measures ($5.3 million) and pre-K classrooms ($2.1 million).
