Who is responsible for replacement?
This is a weird situation so I donâ€™t know how to feel. I 10year old just entered 5th grade and on the 1st day of school his teacher announced all of the 5th grade will be getting Laptops and IPads to use this school year. A cheer went thought the crowd of children and most of the parents gave each other wide eyed scary looks including myself!. My question is would you be happy for the access to cutting edge technology or fearful that you would get a large bill if the equipment were lost or damages during the year? I donâ€™t want to deny my child the same access as the rest of the children but we didnâ€™t get him an IPad or laptop because he has trouble keeping up with his DSi and netbook as it is! what do you think am I being ridiculous to worry about replacement? would you let your 10year old carry around these things in their backpack? can i insure the schools equiptment for loss or damages?
