How can we, the Voters, tell the Presidential Candidates about this most important matter?

What kind of mass marketing style petition can we, the Voters who care about the failed Education System, put together to send to both Sen. John McCain and Sen. Barack Obama? To make this idea of every student who doesn't have a computer, own a linux powered laptop computer so they can access the internet for homework research and to create their own multimedia reports using OpenOffice and other such programs???
