By David Schwartz PHOENIX (Reuters) - Voters in Arizona go to the polls on Tuesday to select a Republican candidate to vie for the seat of outgoing Governor Jan Brewer, who has repeatedly clashed with the Obama administration over illegal immigration. With border security issues high on the political agenda, voters will choose from six hopefuls including state treasurer and businessman Doug Ducey and ex-mayor and developer Scott Smith, who are seen as frontrunners among recent political polls and observers.
(Reuters) - The Los Angeles schools superintendent has suspended a contract with Apple Inc to provide an iPad to each of its students as the $1 billion initiative faces problems and growing scrutiny, the Los Angeles Times newspaper reported. Monday's suspension is the latest setback for the Los Angeles Unified School District's proposed technology rollout, the largest of its kind for any U.S. Under a contract approved a little more than a year ago, Apple's tablet computer was to be coupled with a digital curriculum from Pearson. "Moving forward, we will no longer utilize our current contract with Apple Inc," Superintendent John Deasy told the district's Board of Education on Monday in a memo posted on the newspaper's website.
