The idea of forcing iPADs to kids is not a good idea as it has various problems. Please withdraw the same immediately.
1. It is a health hazard to the kids with constant radiations.
2. It is a big risk that kids are carrying such equipment to schools with them on a daily basis. It makes them a easy target for kidnapping/mugging etc. When schools don't want them to wear even a watch citing the same reason, I am surprised they are forcing to buy iPADs.
3. There would be parents who cant really afford these devices. It can't be forced upon them.
Alternatives to reduce the burden of heavy bags could be (one of the below or a combination of more than one or something new if someone can suggest)
1. They give two sets of text book, one could be kept at school and one at home.
2. Give the CDs/Pen Drives of the text book which can be used at home and books would continue to be at school.
3. Use a file mechanism for classwork and homework instead of books so that they can carry only those papers home daily.
iPAD is definitely not the solution.
Thanks and Regards
