While no one can deny the effectiveness of Apples marketing, and i remember my friends row at school in Australia when he was forced to but 3 Ipads for his childrens studies at school in Australia.
now it seems android had got more of a foothold. At least partly by cost.

By 2013, 40 percent of the digital devices used in American schools were running iOS, while 30 percent were running Windows and 16 percent were running Google’s Chrome OS.
In 2014, sales of Chrome OS devices to schools more than tripled, to over 3.5 million units, while iOS shipments dropped to 2.3 million and Windows devices sold 2.2 million.
