Cook’s appearance didn’t strike me as noteworthy because of anything he said or did while in Idaho, but rather because of what was transpiring outside the school during his visit. Apple’s 2016 donation was spread across 114 schools in 29 states, the Idaho Statesman reported, focusing on "districts where the low-income student population is at least 96 percent." Two years later, Cook was greeted at a recipient Idaho school by crowds of both supporters and protesters, including one who criticized Apple’s donated iPads as a poor replacement for "real teaching."
