  • Good Question. I've heard that some schools are now providing IPads to their students to prepare projects and assignments.

  • Ipads, but yet they're letting go of music/PE/art classes, other sports, and even some teachers? God American schools are screwed up. Go random budget cuts, but hey lets spend some more funds on Ipads! I can't name a single child that has ANY reason to have an Ipad in their possession! I'd rather see a teacher able to do their job!

  • Usually that's up to the teachers at the individual school. At my school they still used primary paper until 2nd. But they have different types with smaller lines for older kids so they aren't writing bug huge letters like in Kindergarten.
