Whereas iPads are not a constructivist tool but an informational tool, and
Whereas students cannot complete the higher order thinking and application skills of analysis and synthesis on an informational tool, and
Whereas teachers are unprepared to manage classrooms of 35 and above with extensive special needs students included,
Be it resolved that the LAUSD has taken its final turn down the path to utter destruction.
What in all that is wonderful and worthwhile is going on?!
