I think the key point is not so much that the teachers need educating - 
they use what's placed in front of them.
The key point IMHO is to educate the IT PROVIDERS such as RM that 
Windows and Microsoft products are just one of a number of alternatives 
It's the IT PROVIDERS who sign exclusive contracts with the LEA (the 
individual schools have no say in who provides their networking, 
hardware etc) and it's they who need to change and accent new formats 
and ideas of accessibility and open source.
