1) Have you already contacted the institutions listed in the database
of Digitally Free Schools at http://digifreedom.net/node/55? Those
are all schools who have declared their FOSS preference either in
their official websites or in public interviews, so there's no
permission to ask there, I'd guess. You may just copy the data into
2) On a similar note, you may want to try to contact the schools
listed at http://digifreedom.net/node/117. Beware that some of the
teachers mentioned there would have no objections to appear again
online, they're not good English speakers. Ask me off list for
their contact info when it's not included in the article.
3) I always welcome new links to add to that database. Please David
and all other edubuntu subscribers, let me know whenever there's a
school that I should list, that is a school which "officially"
declares, preferably in its official website, that it prefers Free
formats and software.
Your own civil rights and the quality of your life heavily depend on how
software is used *around* you: http://digifreedom.net/node/84
