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.
