LA Unified: iPads and Politics

Hosted by

The LA Unified School District will spend $30 million to provide iPads to students — and that's just the beginning. It's the first step in a $400 million plan to give every student a tablet computer in the next two years. Apple is pushing the idea that technology is the key to learning in the new economy. KCRW's Saul Gonzalez has explored the iPads-for-students program with LA Unified officials and others.
