There is are a tremendous number of old educational titles for Macintosh that have been abandoned. The companies are out of business or simply don't have the resources to upgrade the software to MacOSX and iPad/iPod/iPhone. Yet, these are wonderful applications and it is a shame that the current generation of children can't use them. Apple has always been a strong supporter of education. Please do something to fix this problem. Please make it so that the older software can continue to run on future MacOSX/iOS operating systems and hardware. The power of the modern hardware is plenty capable of doing emulation. But there may be an even better way: create an application that users can buy from the iTunes store and Mac Store to cross compile applications from Classic to the new operating system and hardware. By letting users run the cross compiler themselves it eliminates the issue of legalities because the end user is running the cross compiler, not you. This also means that all old software could be cross compiled and not just the few that would get cross compiled if developers or Apple did it one at a time. With Apples billions of dollars surely you can support the old software, education and students of the future. Don't let the wonderful creations in the old software die.
