By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
01:28AM / Monday, December 11, 2017
WILLIAMSTOWN. Mass. — The Williamstown School Committee on Wednesday discussed the role of technology in education and, specifically, whether it is being overemphasized in the classroom.   The discussion was sparked by Principal Joelle Brookner's report on pupil performance on the 2017 Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System exam.   In addition to laying out the continued success of the school's children on the standardized test, Brookner noted that last spring the school's fourth-graders took the MCAS on computer for the first time and that the fourth- and fifth-graders will do so this year.   The school is phasing in a transition to meet the

@theMarket: Should Be Good Month for Stocks
By Bill Schmick,
05:34PM / Saturday, December 09, 2017
The House passed a stop-gap spending bill averting a government shut-down late Thursday night. As a result, markets moved higher. We can expect more of the same until the next deadline, which is just before Christmas.    To be honest, investors have become so used to these eleventh hour deals out of Congress that the markets hardly budge when the drama begins. Dec. 22 is the new date investors will be watching. We will see whether a compromise can be reached on the budget for 2018 by then.   In the meantime, the markets will remain focused on the Republican tax deal. The hope is that a compromise between the House and Senate will be reached in time for President Trump to sign
