Linux for Schools Case Studies
When confronted by parents to use computers and educational software in the classroom, teachers and school officials point to near-empty coffers and stressed budgets as their reason not to do so. Schools can spend thousands per year on computer-oriented Edu programs for their students. Some of these systems can cost a lot to get a full complement of software and student learning materials for a single grade level.
Cost is far too high for many school districts leaving them to either do without computerized educational software or seek free alternatives
Linux, itself, is advantageous because it is free, works on older hardware with which many schools suffer, and there are hundreds of free educational and productivity applications available for it. Most of case studies listed below are in UK schools:
