The invitation for Apple's March 27 education event in Chicago

Apple has scheduled a March 27 event in Chicago to talk about new products for the education market. "Join us to hear creative new ideas for teachers and students," reads the invite sent to reporters.

Why it matters: Schools have been key to Apple since its earliest days, both for the size of the market as well as its influence on what technology people use later in life.
