<Apple and 8bitters of it's ilks that is found in K-12 has it's places
<because these are what excels at teaching kids materials but in high
<school level, we need to convert guys over to real things like
<windows and 486 boxens, unix and like using word processing and
<speadsheets, such yak yak..of most types not including 100% dumb M$

Let me compress that:

Elementary school, how to learn. (language, reading, arithmetic)

Intermeadiate school, how to find answers to questions and communicate

High school, take the first two to the next levels and add skills needed
to find paying work.

Computers are a part of life and M$ stuff is unfortunatly reality we live
with every day. The unfortunate part is I meet kids at the grocer that
play doom, surf the net and can't count change.
