The cost of ownership, the ability to continue working without a deep IT support staff, and collaborative by design software stack makes them a perfect solution for school districts.
I like that the relatively lean IT staffs most districts have, can focus on robust networks and additive technology like robots and programming. Not having to focus on reloading OS's or fighting viral outbreaks.
SIDE NOTE: Yes, I know they have MS Office for Win64 ... but it's not used for a reason, and various components (even those included with MS Office itself) don't exist for it. ;)
The Marines and Royal Navy are exploring the Osprey as a tanker.
Measure the strength of a navy by its logistics and you see who is still in the fight on the 2nd day.
See it this weekend at our 2016 Udvar-Hazy Center Open House! More information: http://s.si.edu/OpenUHC

I don't see the issue those ways. Since k12 teaching is only happening within a government sponsored monopoly, workers only have the choice of teaching there or not teaching. Artificially lowering the wages people are willing to pay, thus lowering the quality of the education. Assumptions of course since universal education has only been tried as a monopoly.
The question Scalia asked, is does forced diversity benefit the student admitted with lower standards? Is there an alternative path with better results. And he should have asked does it benefit the overall experience at the University. Does it benefit society as a whole?
I don't understand the black experience anymore than Scalia does, but I do understand the anger I'd feel if my children didn't get into an university because a less qualified person took the spot. While intellectually I could understand some of the reasons why, emotionally it would seem unfair.
I don't know what a fair answer is, but every action has a cost. Scalia shouldn't be vilified for trying to identify that cost.
