I know. We have gone through this and it is even tougher than you
describe. We even had NYLXS people on the inside doing Mac
installations and it was still impossible to even bring a true computer
science based education into the schools. The levels of corruption
which are preventing children from getting true computer education runs
all the way to the Regents and the Texas and California publishes that
have a lock up of the texts and programs that can be approved by the
regents. Other programs are stone walled by not having job related
certification programs and endemendies.

It is just a dirty street fight all the way into the classroom.

Paul has expereince with regard to exactly this.

One option might be to create a Free Software users computer group on
the high school and colledge levels and join them up in a form of
mentoring.

Yeah yeah...

Life sucks and then you die...and maybe not soon enough.
