Good fundamental points, Ann.

Bet those youngsters don't consider themSELVES to be acting "unfair" when they agree to pay many hundreds of dollars for an electronic device when libraries are free, public phone kiosks still permit cheap calls and both board games and hard copy books cost far less than their "hi tech" equivalents. THEY then exhibit the very same free open market economic choices that they decry in other venues. Sauce for the goose,... 'ya know.

That scenario should resonate with them.

There is a vast disconnect between schools and the real world. I don't know when it started, but I'm gonna guess that the early indicators were "social promotion" and "everyone gets a trophy".
