Report: Schools spend less on tablets than LAUSD
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- School districts are increasingly providing students with tablet computers, but most are spending less than the Los Angeles Unified School District.
LAUSD is paying $768 apiece for an iPad for its students, teachers and administrators. The Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/1cm9rQ1 ) reports other school districts are opting for less expensive devices.
For example, the Perris Union High School District is paying $344 each for a Chromebook for students. In San Diego, some students are equipped with a $200 tablet.
Schools are trying to find ways to hold down costs while embracing technology. Some are leasing computers or buying cheaper iPad models without spending more for curriculum software.
