Minnesota’s Stillwater board of education has approved a plan to give every junior high student in the district an iBook to use at home and school, “despite requests from dozens of angry parents to delay the decision,” reports the Pioneer Press. On Monday, the board approved a five-year, US$2.85 million lease agreement with Apple to provide the laptops. The iBooks will go to about 2,270 students and 135 staff members at Oak-Land and Stillwater junior high schools by next fall.
