L.A. Unified School District Suspends $1 Billion iPad Contract

Posted by · 6254 views · Translate
L.A. Unified School District Superintendent John Deasy suspended future use of a $1 Billion Contract with Apple, which would have been used to provide iPads to all students.

The original $30-million investment was expected to expand to $500 Million, with an additional $500 million being used to expand Internet access at schools. The plan would bring 640,000 iPads to students in the district. Person was also on-board the deal to load curriculum and content on the devices for students. An internal report of the program reportedly showed major problems with the ''process and implementation'

"Moving forward, we will no longer utilize our current contract with Apple Inc.," Deasy wrote in a memo sent to the Board of Education on Monday. "Not only will this decision enable us to take advantage of an ever-changing marketplace and technology advances, it will also give us time to take into account concerns raised surrounding the [project]," Deasy wrote.

Deasy, who was a major proponent of providing iPads is now coming under criticism for his handling of the contract with a bidding process that was tailored to Apple and Pearson. Any iPads already ordered will be deployed to schools in the district, but a new focus will be on laptops, according to the report.

I chose Army because of family tradition. I come from a long line of brave men willing to risk their lives to defend what they love and cherish. I did my duty. My watch is over. Now my son is in your country exterminating all you verminous cowards. Maybe you'll run into him one day...if I were you, I'd pray that day never came, because it will be your last on this earth. Fuktard.

The only thing owned in America was the 9/11, and all these virals prove how shit was at the time before today so what's your excuse that Chinese can possibly do when it owned your sorry shit? Baby you are the hacked mind raped shit yet controlled from the virus of us. Just like your family, I revived the undead and taught these brainwashed fools to join me in your neverending flames, in other words under my control. They moved on to a better life than just being the lazy arse shit who can't be sneaky enough like me. Make your mve already, speaks louder than words. Us Europeans were smart enough than you at the time, but nowadays that's flipped around except to you. I owned you hard like hijacking the plane of the souless scum bibitch you all were at the time. You must be drizzled like a wanker puking maggot. Making one hell of a lesbian out of you. Happy towing.
