Money being spent in the Wrong Places?? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Today, all of year 12 and I were asked to try out a new information database to help us with our studies. This new program cost £14,000.

    So, we tried it-it had information

    BUT we tried typing in anything to do with our subjects (i.e. psychology, biology, engineering etc) and NOTHING came up-just random short pages of information.
    The program was called EBSCO if anyone knows it, but it seems like a massive waste of money to be expected to be used in aid of our courses if we cant find anything on it.

    Anyone have any thoughts on this or other examples of money being used in schools for pointless things??
Do I go to The Streets tomorrow night?
