No iPods for parents

Parents of disabled students won’t get a free IPod Nano for filling out a survey, Polk County, Florida school officials have announced.

The $350,000 that was going to be used for the iPods came from the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, not from stimulus funds, as previously reported by Bay News 9 in Tampa.

The Florida Department of Education said IDEA funds must be used to help students directly.

    The taxpayers should demand heads.
