Maine iBook program scores high in report

Praise for Maine iBooks

About 18 months ago the state of Maine equipped all seventh- and eighth-grade students with iBooks. The plan, which initially came under fire amid budget cuts, is alike. According to a positive report based on responses from 26,000 students and 1,700 teachers, four out of five teachers reported that students are more engaged in their learning and producing better work with the laptops. The state would like to extend the program to high school students as well, although its future, even in present form, has been called into question due to budget reductions. The current program, which cost the state $37.2 million, will expire in 2005.
