> I think it would be better to teach these children how to use LaTeX.

Hahaha! Sorry but I have seen students and teachers have enough trouble with Microsoft Office, let alone with LaTeX. It does create beautiful output but when you sit a student down in front of Notepad and tell them to create a document they wouldn't even know/remember where to begin.

I think a lot of people outside the education sector have very little idea how inexperienced some computer users are.
