Pokemon Comes to School. The Good, the Bad, and the Costly.
Cooper, Bruce S.; Speakman, Sheree T.
Our Children, v25 n7 p13-14 Apr-May 2000
Describes the Pokemon craze among children, noting its complex effects on education. Schools complain that Pokemon cards have an element of gambling, and children are investing more time, money, and energy in them than in schoolwork. However, Pokemon is just another passing craze, it is nonviolent, and it benefits students as they learn the complex rules and skills of the game. (SM)
