Tablets shouldnt be in k-12 schools , for many reasons. For example, we americans already depend on technology way to much. In my school half of the time our devices dont even work. Either because the internet connection, Viruses , Or they are broken. And how exactly should they be able to study at home? I hope they do not expect the kids to take home ipads. Next thing you know the ipads will be broken , then there parents will be forced to pay for something , with money they dont have. Even tho im in my teen's and ' may not know as much' . I still know quite a bit ... And I sure do not want my family growing into a further debt country. I think we have enough to worry about , and stick the the old ways of doing things.
