Julia's mom

I'm the parent of a child who about to be handed an iPad, and although I've read and read about what's going to happen, no one goes into specifics. Why go to school at all if my daughter is going to be interacting with a machine all day? Why even bother with teachers? With all this talk about respecting the iPad, one would think the kids were being given sacred icons to worship.
