I hear that a number of network admins are teachers that fell into the
role part time through a coincidence of knowing how to use a computer,
not because of their being specialists. I imagine that it's only the
larger schools that have budgets to staff the role full time, and I
haven't personal experience of how they go about filling their positions.
