Yes, and I know Word is primarily directed towards word processing. What I
wanted to say is that it CAN also do moste of the stuff you need in DTP.

So saying you have to used Scribus because Word can't do things is usually
wrong. Word can do A LOT, but some things might (with default key bindings) be
harder to do than in a DTP program.

But really, when working in the classroom, isn't the text typing far more
important than precise positioning of frames and manual kerning? Is somebody
really going to teach 5th graders manual kerning?

It's been said over and over again that Scribus is no good for writing the text,
and if the kids are going to write the text in one program, why not let them use
the same program also for the layout?
