Teagan is an effeminate name. Maybe he'll also get a gender-neutral upbringing. Get him a doll already!

"Teagan" is a female name. These parents have failed their child already.

On a school network, Mac anti-virus software is often required.
PC most certainly can't compete against the iLife suite. That would require schools to get licenses for potentially multiple programs that can do something similar and not as seamless.
I'm going to have to do my own cost analysis on PC vs. Mac. Clearly there is a cheaper out-of-the-box price for running PC's where Mac's advantages occur over a longer life-span. Where that break is would be nice to know. Old PC's are worthless... this district would be lucky to find 1,500 people to want an out-of-warranty PC but 1,500 macbooks would sell easily.

I'm embarrassed over the ignorance of board member Bill Lycett along with the other commenters on this page over APPLE vs. PC. There is not a huge difference when most people use an Apple vs. a PC. It boots the OS, and people go right to the web browser, office suite, and other software available cross-platform. They both run very similar and the differences are not substantial in which anybody would be harmed when they have to work on another platform.
If you were all concerned about platforms, perhaps you should throw iOS and Android platforms in the mix. Seriously, the most important aspects about choosing a PC or Apple is functionality, price, and if specific software packages that are going to be used are compatible on such machines.
To do a proper cost analysis one would have to develop and understand the software upgrade costs, life cycle of your average computer in a school environment, warranty costs/repairs, depreciation of the machine, etc. It is a pretty big undertaking to get valid results.
Macs are almost always worth more than a used PC...significantly too.
Up front costs of the PC are cheaper, long term costs bring the Apple Mac back into line. Where do iPad's fit into the mix? Interactive white boards? Apple TV?
Seems to me the school board wasn't given a presentation on the differences in the platforms and the costs involved. So in the end, I guess they were right to shoot it down.

It actually is more like suing the cook of the food that maid you fat and the bar that served you drinks. And yes, it happens. People are that stupid.
Personal responsibility was left on the roadside years ago.

People who don't like the "fake democrats" need to understand that they were put there to force the election to be held a month from now when turnout should be higher in support of Scott Walker.
There were quite a few people who didn't bother going to the polls but they support Walker. Those people will show up June 5.

It actually is worse than that, Charles. You don't need to file a FOIA to access those documents. They become part of the public record.
As soon as they are accepted by the GAB, they'll be processed and slapped right on the Internet for anyone to get names and addresses from anyone who signed.
Anyone can do it. This means unhinged teabaggers armed with guns to some hack behind a computer selling your address and name to a company that will pound your mailbox with targeted mass mailings.
