Education officials in the nation's second-largest school district are working to reboot a $1 billion plan to put an iPad in the hands of each of their 650,000 students after an embarrassing glitch emerged when the first round of tablets went out.
Instead of solving math problems or doing English homework, as administrators envisioned, more than 300 Los Angeles Unified School District students promptly cracked the security settings and started tweeting, posting to Facebook and playing video games.
What a ridiculous and wasteful idea, to hand iPads to a bunch of kids, then wring their hands that the kids played games on them!:rolleyes:
Good way to teach the rugrats a lesson in good ol' American entitlement to something you didn't earn, paid for by someone else. :shrug:
