In what I suspect will be her last article on the Newton Beat, the Globe’s Evan Allen reports on the “wide disparities in fund-raising abilities between schools, and major gaps in technology spending between elementary schools.”

The top fund-raiser was the PTO at Cabot Elementary School, which has 419 students enrolled this year; the group reported spending $167,077 on technology during those three school years. During the same period, the PTO at Countryside Elementary School, which serves 457 students, reported spending nothing on technology.
