Oh how the world moves on so quickly when a new idea becomes the norm. Whereas only a few folk will have a particular gizmo and they will feel superior and knowledgeable. And often poorer than they’d like! Once the markets open up and the gizmo can be bought on any platform for a fraction, then reality about the scheme sinks in.
For some reason it isn’t always as easy to get youngsters to excite and pulsate over the chances to improve their educaitonal attainment. They don’t hang around in jubilant groups down the town to brag about coming top in this computer group or that. If there was some way to make being clever and confident a worthy badge for the gang minded fraternity, then that school badge would be worn with as much pleasure as the original badge of Honour.
