L.A. Confidential: Federal iPad Investigation

Los Angeles Unified school district’s iPad program can’t seem to get off the ground. First, a few industrious students hacked the locked-down iPads almost instantly; now, the former superintendent’s contract with Apple and Pearson is under federal investigation.
