In that case, teach them LaTex instead of a word processor. No, this
isn't a joke ? LaTeX is rather easy to learn. I know of someone's mother
(the lady in question was about 70) who learned LaTex quite fast.

A DTP program isn't a replacement for a word processor ? it's completely
different in fact.

The only valid reason to teach DTP to such young pupil would be if they
want to publish a student's newspaper ? in that case only the person
responsible for laying out the paper would feel the need to learn
something about DTP.

Insanity is hereditary.  You get it from your kids.
