Greetings all!
   I'm working on a short-term assignment to review and update 
Canonical's Ubuntu in Education resources.  This includes making the 
various websites easier to use for end user like students, parents, 
educators as well as solution providers and others who want to do 
business in the Education market place using Ubuntu and its 
derivatives.  The Education sector is an important space on many levels 
to both Canonical and Ubuntu.  I can't make any promises other than it 
being a personal goal of mine to help drive the adoption of Ubuntu in 
Education at every level so for starters I'm opening up the dialog with 
the community on best to use the limited resources Canonical currently 
has to develop some new content for the following audiences:

End users: students, parents, educators
School level adoptions: decision makers
District/regional deployments; policy makers
Solution Providers: those delivering services and hardware to the 
Education sector.

If you have any thoughts on what each audience needs to know please 
voice your thoughts here or email me privately.  I've also added this 
item to the Edubuntu meeting agenda to help further the conversation.

Also, does anyone have idea of how many schools might be using 
Ubuntu/Edubuntu? or if there is some place we can ask people to let us 
know about their schools?
