Apple Apple's education event just ended, and just as Ars Technica said, Apple announced better support for textbooks, as well as a textbook authoring tool. The textbook authoring tool is heavily inspired by Keynote and Pages, and hence, I already know it's going to be top-notch and very pleasant to use. In addition, the company also repositioned iTunes U as a Blackboard competitor. As great as all these new tools are, several large red flags went up in my mind: I remember what it was like being the only student who didn't use Windows. Update: "Any e-textbook author that wants access to the iPad-toting masses must make his or her work an exclusive to iBooks 2."

Ehrrmm. Didn't you go to school in Europe? In Denmark the high school/early college equivalent require a university degree from teachers.

So by posh, you mean an completely average European high school?

I think requiring the under-grad before attending teacher's colledge is pretty common. What stuck out for me was having PHD's teaching high-school. PHD infront of a class at Uni, sure.. but in lower school levels, that is quite impressive (or my schools where really back-water maybe).
