I have three high school students at MHS. They don't play games, they learn. The Ipads are a great tool and they are saving money at MHS by eliminating paper and other supplies. The district has the ability to block several sites like Facebook while the Ipads are linked to the school's network. I was skeptical at first when they were proposed but, I can see how much they have saved money and increased the learning of the kids at MHS. I applaud the district for taking such a controversial step. And, by the way, MHS is consistently one of the top schools, academically, every year.

I'm with you twinder. If, and I believe it does, IPad's increase a child's interest in education, by all means, sign me up as someone willing to help pay for them. We live in a technological world now. It's about time it starts taking a bigger role in education.

If your kid is playing angry birds while in school, I guess you're doing something wrong as a parent.
