New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie called for putting an iPad in the hands of every single American student Wednesday, saying it was a key way to improve outcomes in the nation’s schools.
“The only thing kids should be carrying around from classroom to classroom is an iPad,” Christie told an education summit in New Hampshire. “Every kid should have an iPad.”
Christie justified this approach by saying that it reflected the reality of modern children, who have grown up immersed in an environment filled with technology.
“Our kids, they live on smartphones and tablets,” Christie said.
