    You know, back in my day all we had were old text books and a black chalk board! Wish we had iPads back in the days in my high school years! c/o 2007!

But when he does play with it I rarely have to make him play the educational games be does it all by himself. He does watch the occasional Elmo or sesame street shows tho.

    Wow. CT schools can't even afford to keep teachers employed. I bet 25% of these kids will break them too.

Slides to unlock and everything.
    Yea my 3yr old is the same.. I have to hide it from him at times otherwise when I get to it there could be 20 more games on it from the app store! And he has been using my iPhone to play games and listen to music.. Even knows how to look up the music he wants on YouTube for the last 18 months or so. His grandmother who has never even looked in the direction of a computer watches him and is amazed by it all but in our house it's just the norm haha.

    My one and only point: The amount of tax payer dollars wasted here was astronomical.

    Wow thats a very rude thing to say. Or even try and speculate that we are obese. There is nothing wrong with stimulating the mind with the games and flashcards that are on the iPad. There are tons of them. My son is not on it 24 hrs a day. I read books to him with it and he knows all of his shapes and lots of his colors because of the iPad. Dont be a jerk.

    Thank you, what a freaking waste! I'm glad that the money that uncle sam takes out of my paycheck every two weeks is going to give 1,700 kids something to go on Facebook with during class.
    And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream! Springboard screwy after reboot? Here is the fix

    What part of NE Mississippi? I lived in Columbus for 7 years (was in the Air Force), and I've got friends from all over the area.

    As for the iPad expense to the tax payers -- I'm all for it and whatnot, but shouldn't we be concentrating on correcting the pay scale for teachers first? Well, unless we plan on replacing them with iPads too...
    Do I brag about which phone I have in this space?

    Tupelo; about 45 minutes north of Columbus. Been to the base many times as a youth in Civil Air Patrol!
