Google has been aggressively pushing Chromebooks to education from the start, so it's not surprising to see them making progress. The Chromebook is actually well-suited for use in schools, particularly for 1:1 programs. It starts up fast and is easy to use and manage.

There is still the issue of access to Windows applications, which many schools use. One solution to this is a product like Ericom's AccessNow HTML5 RDP client. AccessNow enables Chromebook users to securely connect to any RDP host, including Terminal Server and VDI virtual desktops, and run their applications and desktops in the Chrome browser. And there's nothing to install on the device, so it's easy to implement.

The Richmond 2 school district in South Carolina is including AccessNow as part of its deployment of Chromebooks to thousands of sudents and staff. You can read more about that project in this white paper:
