    Apple CEO Tim Cook and Ivanka Trump, adviser to President Donald Trump, are visiting Idaho's Wilder School District together today to examine the district's use of technology in education, according to the Idaho Statesman.

    The visit is part of Ivanka Trump's ongoing workforce development and science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education initiatives. Last year, the Trump administration reached out to Cook and other major technology, business, and education leaders for advice regarding STEM education in public schools.

    In 2016, Apple donated an iPad to every student, a Mac and iPad to every teacher, and an Apple TV to every classroom in the Wilder School District through its ConnectED initiative. Since 2014, Apple has pledged $100 million in technology solutions to 114 low-income or underserved schools across the United States.

    Regardless of how you feel about the policy of the current admin - encouraging the future generation to get involved with STEM is a bi-partisan issue. We need these fields for the USA to remain competitive on the global stage.

    Same, I am not afraid to give credit where credit is due. Obama was a good president socially - but I think his foreign policy absolutely sucked.

    Why? Someone from the tech industry plus someone representing the federal government are going to visit a school to see how it's use of technology works. They'll probably have some great discussions on how to make it better, and because Ivanka clearly has some influence there is a real possibility that some of those ideas can get turned into action. Nothing awkward about that!

    All evidence to the contrary.

    I guess you're not aware of the 10% tariff discussion on Apple products?

    What Apple is doing reminds me of how Andrew Carnegie built over 2500 community libraries between 1889 and 1929. Without private sector support from philanthropist and corporations we'd be stuck in a bureaucratic government quagmire of funding issues, endless public hearings, and tons of political hyperbole.

    The wealthy (Business/individual) will be remembered not by the number of Ferrari's, summer homes, and 20k sq/ft city residences. Nope. They will be remembered by lasting contributions made to education, science, and the arts.
