1. Why do students need iPads to access school curriculum? Don't they have text books?
2. Was it cheaper to buy iPads for kids than to provide them with text books? I don't think so.
3. Apple merely sold the iPads to the school system. They weren't contracted to provide IT Services and install any sort of "access management" software on them, right? Someone else was contracted for that. Apparently the software that they installed was ineffective, unless we want to believe that most of the kids in these classes are trained hackers (doubtful).
4. Getting a refund from Apple because a third party's access management software was ineffective? Seems to me that the school system needs to get a refund from the company who installed that access management software. It wasn't Apple.
