    I'm honestly not surprised. They would be losing a lot of money if nobody paid back the iPads after they break. But we Never agreed to pay if it was broken... I am in a hard place as a parent, it would be easy to cover up my sons actions but I feel the right thing to do is fight it.

    Kids aren't ready for these devices in their hands, not until they are much harder to break.

    Ill post again with how the fight goes in court.

    I'll be interested to know how you go with this. Maybe Apple should manufacture a sturdier iPad for schools, I'm sure others in certain employment areas would also like this. With our business we have 12 mobiles for our employees and we were having a hell of a time with dropped phones. Nokia then produced a model that can handle drops and even getting wet to a certain degree, problem solved!

    Perhaps it would be in their best interest to put Otterboxes on the iPads before allowing the kids to use them.

    Simple and moderately inexpensive....

    Just my $.02.

    As far as I know the only form of protection the school had on the iPads was an invisible shield front and back. Protects well against starches but not a fall.

    The otterbox would be a very wise choice. I think I'll suggest it to the school.

They should not have iPads paid for from the school. There is no way that a school would think that would work out... Its so dumb to me, a class of 14yr olds with $700 devices? Of course they will break them, and like they have the replacement money...
    We are going to court about the matter next Tuesday.

    Uhhh, isn't this a lot like any other school-issued property that a kid's family is responsible for when he/she takes it off-campus? After all, school district taxpayers essentially bought the iPads in the first place. Lose the textbook or destroy it, you pay for it. Lose the school-issued football helmet, pay for it. I remember when my sister was issued an expensive IBM Selectric typewriter (we went to HS in the early 80s) and she broke it at home. Totally nonfunctional after that. Our school sent Mom a bill for replacement but later decided to cut her a 50% break on that, realizing that was partially their fault. The lesson for them: keep the expensive stuff on-campus. After that, no more typewriters were loaned out.

    iPads have their place in school and ARE the wave right now, being excellent teaching tools if implemented correctly. Until their prices drop to a couple hundred dollars or less, I would recommend any school district to keep them in-class/on-campus only, where caution and control of use can be better effected.

    Anyway, good luck in your case. To be honest, I doubt the magistrate will find in your favour. But I could be surprised.

    Yep. Lost the battle in court.
    Oh well, it made me feel better to have someone kindly tell me the law rather then the idiot electronics teacher calling me and telling me I own the school a ton of money.. After everything they want either $800 (Marked up to eight bills due to taxes and the labor or ordering one online, so the court stated), or a new in box iPad 2 64GB Black. Time to search the black market.

    So if you have to buy them a new one, does this mean you get to keep the old broken one? If the screen is just broken, $80 and you've got yourself a functioning iPad to keep/sell on, right?

    I would get to keep the old one. And maybe I will try and fix it. Very good idea!
