Hi, A.C.:

re: "All of the kids who managed to jailbreak their iPads should be rounded up and placed in magnet schools, congratulations, you've weeded out the smart and curious kids"

If it was in fact the actual students who did the hacking, I agree (and the teachers should ask them to explain how they did it, not to be punitive but as an example for the other kids of how to approach a problem). I'm guessing, though, based on my long-ago high school experience, that only a handful of smarties actually did the work and the rest of the kids either copied the smarties' work or paid the smarties to do their work for them. Lessons all 'round.
