Students keep iBooks
The Pleasanton school board voted Tuesday to that equips every student and teacher with a wireless iBook. But Superintendent Alton Fields said there was "a good chance" the issue would come up again when the board meets in July. A crowd of about 150 people broke into applause when the vote came down, ending speculation that the new school board, elected in May, would kill the project. The $2.2 million project with Apple includes 1,207 wireless iBook laptops, training for staff, and additional equipment such as video and still cameras, projectors and color printers. No other public school in the San Antonio area has given wireless laptops to all its pupils.
