Teach For America is a program that recruits teachers fresh from the best colleges and universities and places them in low-income schools. To help them in the important job of instructing the next generation, teachers this year were offered a free iPad 1.
According to Fortune 2.0, Apple collected these iPads from customers who were no longer using the tablet device. The Cupertino company supposedly collected and distributed iPads to over 9,000 teachers in 38 states.
