If education is key as you said, wouldn't it make sense to educate young comers to the industry, that are still in school and give them sensible academic discounts and encourage them to purchase legit products at an early stage in their careers?

There are only a handful of companies out there that offer academic discounts and I applaud them, most offer nothing, why not make academic discounts mandatory.

Us pros we don't need the academic discounts if we really need a specific software we buy it because it is an investment for our livelihood and will pay itself back in due course. But for students not the same can be said so they use pirate software instead.
I don't know just makes sense to me to encourage legal buying of software.
