Apple-funded high school

MIchigan has and was expected to launch in this Fall; however, district officials remain confident the project will happen at some point in the futre. The Detroit Free Press reports that Gov. Jennifer Granholm "got ahead of the deal when she said last week that Apple had made a commitment of 'magnitude' to support a small school in Detroit. But her office canceled a news conference about the project Tuesday, saying that the details are not complete." The school district expects to plan and fund the technology-based school over the course of the school year with grant money that will be spent on Apple products, school officials said. According to the report, Apple staff will train teachers and students at no cost.
