Gee, I had a job like that until recently.  Except the people I worked
for support about 30 school districts in 2 counties.  All they offer is
Windows "solutions" (more like "problems").  Even with many school
districts unable to afford the Windows technology they would not look at
Linux as a possible other product to offer.  When I was growing up I was
taught that the different between America and Communist countries was
that in America you're given a choice!  So I exercised my choice and
left (in disgust).  BTW, it was a state funded agency.
