Oh dear. Edumacators strike again.

I like this bit:

At least one form required a signature acknowledging that a parent is financially responsible if a student breaks or loses the device. The idea was that students would not receive an iPad until the signed form was returned.


And what if low-income families, who make up most of the school system, can't afford to take responsibility for a device that is supposed to replace student textbooks?

Books are cheaper. And no one wants to steal a fourth grade math book. Not even another fourth grader.
