It is often the case that not all students graduate with equal technology skills. This can be the result of inadequate equipment and instruction in school due to a lack of funds or foresight on the part of school administration.

harmani.com reviewIn the last academic year (2009/2010), there were more than 670,000 foreign students in the United States.
