I saw this story yesterday about a school in Maine will be giving iPad2 touchpads to the young students to learn their ABCs and 123s. These things cost about $500 each, and the school will pay around $200,000 for this program.
Do you think this is money well spent on children's education, or do you think the money could be spent better elsewhere, like on hiring more teachers and improving teacher's salaries?
I'd love to hear your opinions on this one.
