[school-discuss] my puzzle about OSS in education


Since Becta published the report on OSS(open source software) in schools, many people and school pay their attention to OSS in education now.

Why shall we use OSS in education? The report think the main reason is that applying OSS in schools should slash school’s IT budgets. Is that the only reason or the most important reason for schools’s adoption of OSS?

Do you think using OSS in schools have any other advantage? Especially do you agree that using OSS in education will do better to help students in mastering computer skills?

 Help for your reply.
