Re: Studies show...

More properly trained teachers, parents that read to small children, books in home, smaller class sizes. Laptops & tablets make education worse. About the only SW fit for purpose for education is wordprocessing & spreadsheet, though webbrowser is handy if the kids know how to research rather than copy/paste wikipedia. There are a few niche applications that are useful, like CAD, schematic capture, programming IDE, Planetarium style SW etc, for specialist subjects. All more available in decent free versions on desktop Linux & Windows, not iOS, Android or Win Mobile.
