"California's schools to lay off 25,000 staff"

California may fancy itself as the fifth largest economy in the world, but when it comes to funding its school system it is a calamity...

Hey Guys,

To encourage everyone on how important this project is, I just had a
phone consultation with a school district in California. They were very
interested in Linux and have started to setup test systems. The
educational software coordinator, Nondra, was having a very hard time
finding the good educational applications that run on Linux. I let her
know about this project and am going to send her a Freeduc CD. However I
don't know the content of the Freeduc CD, I am sure they do not have all
the educational applications on the CD. The school officials that are
considering using Linux desperately NEED a good source for the
educational software that is available. They need some thing that makes
it easier for them to get hands on and demo software, it would be a
nightmare to go all over the internet to get the available software. 

So I am letting you know that the frontlines need this tool. Thanks for
everyone's work.

Regards :),
