Your Education Stimulus Dollars at Work: iPod Edition

The Polk County school district is giving away iPods to some parents.

The school district is using the device to reward parents of children with disabilities who fill out a 10-minute online survey. The district wants to know how well it's connecting with the parents and how to get parents involved in their children's education.

The district is spending about $350,000 in federal stimulus money for the iPods.

 Update: After pressure from the blogosphere the school district rescinds ipod giveaway.
