It seems like these machines are actually owned by the government or the school department, rather than the children. Which is fine, really. When I was a schoolchild, my school owned the textbooks I used. So this is really a scheme by which the owner of a laptop can secure it in certain ways and to a certain extent against people who have physical access to the machine.
I assume that these devices will have to be returned by their users once they aren't children any more. If nothing else, the users will need a phyiscally larger interface eventually.
