    my kid's school wants to pay a ton of money to buy iPads instead of Android tablets; Help me find arguments to convince them otherwise! If you know:

    - good K-12 apps,
    - have read credited reviews to this discussion,
    - know schools that picked Androids,
    - know good reasons why Android vs iOS (soft or hardware)
    - good sources of market developments
    - etc

    please add it to this thread. Thanks

    I'd vote for using that money to improve education...a tablet can be a great tool but as a teacher I'm more concerned with the fact that kids can barely read a book when they get the high school. Buy them lots of books for the 299 cost of a tablet then when the break or steal it it won't hurt.

    @kageryu @cdicesare2002 Thanks for your responses!

    Has anyone read any credible writeup that compares these options?
