Apple's partnership with the ConnectED program has helped over 32,000 students

In 2014, the President of the United States, Barack Obama, announced the program ConnectED, which would take high-speed internet to poor schools in the country.

There were partnerships with several technology companies and Apple entered that cake, contributing $ 100 million to iPads, computers and other tools.

The next American academic year (2016-2017) is already about to begin and the number of students already benefited from iPads of 32,145 across the country! The number of teachers who are enjoying this partnership has increased from 9 thousand.

Apple has also helped schools install more than 300 kilometers network cables in your units.

In addition to providing the devices, Ma also sent professionals to assist administrators, teachers and students in order to use the technology in the best possible way.

Carver Elementary School in Indianola (Mississippi) was the last to join the program at 66 to participate in this initiative.

All of its 701 students can now enjoy iPads with a variety of educational apps to help them.

Well, such a program could come to Brazil, huh? It costs nothing to dream 😝
