“West Feliciana Middle School sixth-graders left school last Tuesday with laptop computers and words of encouragement and caution,” James Minton reports for WBRZ-TV.
MacDailyNews Note: West Feliciana Parish is located in the Baton Rouge, Louisiana metro area.
Minton reports, “The students are participating in ‘Turn on to Learning,’ a $5 million initiative to put Apple MacBook computers into the hands of more that 3,500 sixth-graders and their teachers across the state.”
“West Feliciana’s students received their computers last fall, and Tuesday was their first opportunity to use them at home,” Minton reports.
“The state program offered each school 52 computers, but West Feliciana correctly assumed that some schools would not participate and therefore asked, and received, enough computers for every sixth-grader at the parish’s middle school,” Minton reports.
