now that sounds like a good idea - perhaps this would be a way for all
of you who are parents to talk to your children's schools about open
source  - if the websites are badly designed or could do with a
make-over then why not offer to help and then you'll meet the staff
responsible for ICT and you can talk to them about Ubuntu and FOSS - and
if you are not a parent you can still offer to help.
This loco could provide some back-up support for members who want to do
this and/or create some guidelines for schools along the lines of
website do's and don'ts (incorporating the criticisms made in this
thread) in a simple and positive way plus suggestions of FOSS software
schools could use and a plug for Ubuntu. 
Anyone interested?
