Technically it's already federal law, but the states are allowed to not enforce depending on their position with the EPA. That should change.
Most of these things don't have all that much cost, and for some of them, they're a cost that the individual should have borne anyway.
Maybe we're looking at what Earth has now completely in the wrong way, considering that even at 430km the ISS is being slowed by atmospheric drag - common assumption has it that "Space" occurs at what, shy of 100km?
Neptune's radius is about 25,000Km. Earth's radius plus the altitude of the ISS is about 6800Km. That's an awful lot of volume to burn-off.
First, based on the model(s) of computer(s) you're working with, determine if there's an upgrade path, and if that upgrade path is something that whoever provides support will find acceptable. For many models of computers sold to school districts, that means integrated video, fairly small amount of RAM, small hard disk drives (as they're using using network storage), and the like. Figure out how much RAM the computer can take, what video card options are compatible (some even supported by the OEM) and what hard disk drive upgrades will increase both speed and capacity.
If you have multiple of these computers, have the kids play their game on the inadequate machine. Then introduce upgrading it to them. Open it up, swap the RAM. Boot it up, watch their eyes light up as the game plays better. Shut it down. Replace the hard disk drive (that you duplicated in advance!) and watch the performance improve again. Shut it down, install the video card. Same thing, watch the performance continue to grow.
This teaches them that there's real benefits to what they want to do based on what they do in the physical world to the computer.
I agree, for basic workstation stuff it works fine as-is.
