Although some were optimistic that the Los Angeles Unified School District's $30 million iPad program would go well, all hasn't been smooth-sailing so far.
ABC News is reporting that the admirable plan to equip 30,000 Los Angeles students with iPads has "hit another snag."
In addition to the program running dramatically over-budget, iPad hacking has led to scores of iPads being "repossessed" from the students.
The school-issued iPads were installed with their own security software that prevented students from getting access to anything but the preloaded educational software. However, students at several different schools discovered a work around within hours after students received their iPads.
"We could see this thing coming," said Sarah Bradshaw, the chief of staff for District 5 of the LAUSD. "So much of this has been rushed and so ill thought out."
