Default Fonts for learning

Thomas Phinney has given in his Web log

(http://blogs.adobe.com/typblography/)

a very useful list of the font families in 'Font Folio Education Essentials & AIGA', which Adobe has introduced; since the collection includes several of the families of optically sized fonts and costs only $149 (US), many people that do not reckon themselves 'learners' may be interested. The number of individual fonts is 500.

They may be interested but they cannot buy.

Here are the requirements:
… qualified education end users from United States and Canada to purchase Education versions of Adobe products at a reduced price. Education end users are full or part time students, faculty, staff and employees of government-certified educational institutions.

There are the same conditions for students outside Canada and the USA, though not every country qualifies: those are only the reqirements for Canada & the USA. As it happens, my youngest daughter is a student in Toronto!

I made that point because you had suggested that “non-learners” might be interested in the font set.

Maybe so, but they can’t legally buy or use it.

Perhaps you didn’t recognize my ersatz inverted commas; I meant ‘learners’, by which I meant those studying, full time or part time, at a recognized teaching establishment: they’re not necessarily studying typography.

Even if the forum members do not include many students, it probably does include quite a number of mothers, fathers, or others with an interest in their welfare. And, of course, the forum does include several educators.
