Google App Store For Education Shutdown: ChromeBooks Prevails

Two years and some days Google lunched App Store version for education for children whose main aim is to promote and push Android Tablets into schools. Thought there has been no news about this education version until now, when Google officially announcing plan to shut the store.

Google tells TechCrunch that in about a month it'll "no longer sell Google Play for Education licenses," so schools won't be able to buy and distribute apps in bulk to their students. Google says it'll continue to support the tablets already out there using Play for Education apps.
As of March 14 or later, Google will no longer sell Google Play for Education licenses. We’re committed to providing schools with the best-in-class tools for the classroom, including Chromebooks, which are the #1 selling device in US K-12 education, and a strong and growing ecosystem of educational apps. We’ll continue to support our Google Play for Education customers and the devices that they have purchased.
Shutting down play for education will not be a failure to Google Inc. because since the launch of the play for education no significant improvement/growth was recorded since the main aim is to promote Android tablet for education; which has low adaption rate then.  But on the other hand ChromeBooks has recieved significant growth so therefore Google plan to promote more of Chromebook since that is what Google is interested in right now.
