I would have thought that the iLiad would be rather too expensive and delicate to be used by schoolchildren, wouldn't it? The little horrors don't treat their textbooks with any great care - I can imagine how long an iLiad would last!
Perhaps it has potential to be used in universities, but I think that schools are not a particularly valid market for it.

HarryT's point about the fragility of e ink screens is a good one. There are a few school districts that give all their high school students (not sure what this is called in other countries, but we're talking about students aged 14-18) laptops, but laptops fold up and protect the screens. A form factor like the Newton, with a hard shell protective cover for the screen, might work. The iLiad, with its exposed screen and separate (optional) cover, would be a lot more exposed.
