Open Source Schools

I've often lamented the lack of uptake of open source in schools. Here's a site that's trying to do something about it, called, logically enough, Open Source Schools:

The Schools Open Source Project is an initiative to help schools with awareness, adoption, deployment, use and ongoing development of Open Source Software (OSS). A number of schools are already realising the benefits of OSS within their ICT strategy. This project will work to share their experiences along with good OSS practice from other sectors with the wider community of educational practitioners, including teachers, decision makers and IT specialists.
