Since the reporting by "journalists" at the Press Telegram are typically bad, I'll just go ahead and ask about the free iPads.

Since they cost an average of $500 apiece, are these being given to the students to keep? If they destroy, or lose the Ipad, are they liable for it's replacement? Why are they being issued a "computer" that doesn't have a keyboard? Ever try writing an essay on a touchscreen? It's not easy.

If they are being given to the kids, who decided to give these kids $500 iPads? Has that person lost his/her mind? Where is the money coming from? Where will the money continue to come from as these $500 Ipads are lost, broken, or stolen?
