Trips to Apple Stores will no longer be allowed due to conflict over "public service" and "commercial gain".
School trips to Apple Stores have been banned by the education ministry, after a furore over claims they were exploiting children for commercial gain.
Under education minister Paul Vannier, the ministry has banned all future visits to the tech giant shops, saying that they contravene the “principle of public service neutrality”, reported weekly news source, Marianne.

Teachers could sign up online by choosing their nearest store (of 20 in the country), selecting how many children there would be, and stating the technology already being used in the classroom.
