    That is funny as hell.

    So why don't we teach kids to just do the tests and ignore them.

    What are these netbooks for? One thing I haven't heard said int the netbook vs tablet controversy.

    How much FREE EDUCATIONAL SOFTWARE is there for Tablets. Plenty of this stuff was begun development before there were netbooks. But it is mostly for Windows or even DOS not for Android/ARM machines. So getting a tablet is kind of silly when there is FREE SOFTWARE that is worth a lot more than the computer but won't run on tablets.

    Why aren't any educators pointing that out?

    GeoGebra

    Free Educational Software And Games

    Free Educational Software

    FREE Educational Software - Freeware

    How many teachers are worried about how good a job computers can do?

    And if you go to university sites, you can find many more wonderful learning items. This is just one of many examples;

    Well, someone with a smidgen of intellect might just read some of the sites in order to find out.

    And it was just an example of what you can find on almost any subject at various University sites.

    We need a trillion or so to make/convert educational software to the latest tech tablets and such!
