    "In Knoxville [Tennessee}, the Webb school is making an iPad mandatory. Students from the fourth grade onward will be expected to have an iPad for school work. If the expense of the iPad is prohibitive, the school offers a leasing plan."

    I think that to replace school books in K-12 students, a Kindle would be better. With an iPad the student could play games, access the internet, social networks or porn.

    Pfffttt, you should have studied for a Masters that would give you some real life skills.

    Saw this story, and I think it's a great! I'm staring my spring semester in college today and 1 of my classes had their text in Kindle, so my Ipad will be coming with me to class!
