From what I understand, Chromebooks in schools are just used for web browsing, word processing, and spreadsheets. Did Apple’s education event show sort of an aspirational view on tech in education that goes far beyond that? Is it possible that Apple is mostly aiming at higher-end schools who won’t balk at the price of iPads and accessories compared to Chromebooks? It definitely seems like they were aiming not at all teachers, but for the cream of the crop, who might be more likely to be at better schools. Maybe iPads are more for private schools, which is kind of a bummer, but is still a sizable market.
