Los Angeles Unified won’t try to give every student a computer, said Superintendent Ramon Cortines on Friday. It’s too expensive, he said. Besides, he told reporters, “education shouldn’t become the gimmick of the year.”
John Deasy, his predecessor, was forced out after his $1.3-billion iPads-for-all plan crashed on rollout, notes the Los Angeles Times.
Cortines requested a federal review, which found “lack of resources and inadequate planning for how the devices would be used in classrooms and, later, how they would be evaluated, reports the Times.
