While Needham is busy preparing to purchase iPads for all Middle Schoolers, Newton schools are embroiled in a controversy over whether or not to the Newton South volleyball team should be allowed to wear shirts they purchased themselves,  The TAB reports.

First-year athletic director Patricia Gonzalez decided to not allow the team to wear the jerseys that were approved last season after the team fund-raised for new uniforms. She believes that because the jerseys have the players’ last names on the back, they don’t represent what the school stands for.
