Canadian Education

A forum for discussion of issues important to the future of education for Canadians.

It is unfortunate that so many so-called 'educators' have the mentality of the Inquisition (or perhaps the Salem Witch Hunts, etc.). However, that indeed seems to be the case, as pointed out by this recent event. Is this happening in your schools? Are your children being denied opportunity due to either corrupt lobbyists or ignorant administrators? However, if you read the comments on this story, (and I encourage you to do so), you will be heartened to see comments by many schools who are using linux. Let's hope it continues to spread and shine the light of freedom and knowledge everywhere.
And indeed it is. Now here is a very progressive school system, that is providing the best possible computer education for their students...a one to one ratio! That's right, one computer for every every the entire state...and all running on LINUX! Here's a recent conference about it, that gives some numbers for you. :-) It's called the InAcess project, by the Department of Education of the state of Indiana. Demonstrates the incredible waste going on in Canadian schools.
