Making Decisions About Open Source Software (OSS) for K-12

Various authors, Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory, Jul 08, 2003
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This set of resources offers a nice step by step tour through the arguments for and against the use of open source software in schools. It is a balanced presentation - sometimes annoyingly so - and is presented in such a way as to allow administrators decide what is important. If you need a highlight, I think it's this: open source is a viable alternative, but support is the key. It depends on what your staff can do.
