Some education experts ask why Irish schools insist on parents paying for relatively dear iPads and not alternatives http://t.co/INeR5EVAwC

Because of the confusing use of the word ‘alternative’. It really means ‘something else’ in this context as opposed to ‘something just as good’.
Obviously everyone wants an iPad-class device for €200. But in the real world, that simply doesn’t happen.
