BALONEY!

An American school board kills Macs in their schools... why?! Because their techs can't get them connected to the internet?! It's a wonder how the State of maine does it?

In other bad Mac edu news, Michigan school is recommended to go HP:

From the talk-back section off this article, however, there seems doubt that the state can even afford it in the first place...

Regarding link #1, its probably better for Apple to avoid the stupidest segment of the general population anyways.


Regarding link #2, yes that was a bummer, and you're right, the deal may only be a fraction of the 130,000

re: Link #1. This pretty much says it all right here:

"In a pair of split votes, the board members approved transferring elementary technology aide Terri Martin to the middle school library effective immediately, and they approved Jo Ellen Fedder as an elementary technology aide at $8 per hour, also effective immediately."

That's the dumbest thing I have ever read.

But, did anyone send an email to the address at the end?

I have actually been to Milton, PA, with my disabled daughter, to a special clinic there for profoundly disabled children. When I asked about the new programs that were available with Bliss symbols, I was told that they only worked with Apple IIe computers. "So?" I asked. I never did get a reply. Shades of things, and attitudes, to come.
