How Will iPads Change LA's Public Education?

Hosted by

Los Angeles Unified School District is spending big money on iPads. Is there evidence that math and reading scores will increase? We compare LA Unified's plans to the experience of other school districts. Also, the elected board of LA Unified has staged a leadership revolution. Monica Garcia, who's allied with "reformers," was replaced as President by Richard Vladovic, reportedly not the choice of LA's new Mayor, Eric Garcetti. We hear what that could mean.
