“No plan is in place for Apple Computer to finance a new technology high school in Detroit this fall, school officials said Tuesday,” Chastity Pratt reports for the Detroit Free Press. “Gov. Jennifer Granholm apparently 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 transform the new location of Crockett High into a technology-based school over the course of the school year with grant money that will be spent on Apple products, school officials said. Apple staff will train teachers and students at no cost,” Pratt reports. “But that’s as far as talk of the deal goes, at least for now.”
