|Why Apple in Rutherford Schools?|
Some Rutherford residents are still asking why apple computers are being used in the Rutherford School System. Two years ago, The Rutherford board of education prepared a defensive multi-page report on why Rutherford schools have decided to stay with apple computers and mailed it to many or all parents of Rutherford Students. What was missing in the report was the opinion of those who have probably objected purchasing more Apple computers. Also, the report did not show if this is a group decision or the decision of one person?
Now your opinion as a student or parent can be published in this page with all the details. Lets find the facts and collect some statistics to show what percentage of Rutherford families want to stay with apple computers and what percentage want to switch.
