The Ratliff report: one view of the iPad program gone awry
LA School Report | August 27, 2014
It’s long. It’s detailed. And it’s dry.
By now, most people know the iPad program didn’t go swimmingly, leading Superintendent John Deasy to suspend it this week and reopen a bid process that would continue the effort to get digital devices to all 650,000 district students.
In her report, which she alone wrote, Ratliff offers recommendations for how to avoid problems in the future. And just what happened this time? In short, she concludes, the district messed up. Big time.
