Ramon Cortines Declares No Ipads for all Los Angeles Unified School District’s Students

According to a report in the Los Angeles Times today, Friday February 20, 2015 by Howard Blume , Ramon Cortines, the Interim Superintendent of Los Angeles Unified School District declared that the school district does not have enough funds to provide IPADS for every student, teacher and administrator to fulfill an “ill-fated $1.3-billion” initiative by John Deasy, the former superintendent. Students will be provided computers for testing and instruction as needed. Superintendent Cortines stated, “I don’t believe we can afford a device for every student … Education shouldn’t become the gimmick of the year.”
