TEACHER PLUS (teacherplus01@yahoo.co.in) of July-August 2003 carries an 
article titled 'Freeing computers in schools'. It says:

	Computers are used in many schools these days, as a
	teaching/training tool as well as for administration
	purposes. Most schools, however use, expensive 
	software that not only takes away a huge chunk of the 
	school budget, but also limits the number of
	teaching/learning tools that can be used in school.
	This article discusses Free Software and why
	Free Software makes sense in education....

A cartoon on the front-page has a hand-raising student ask the teacher: 
"Now that we have free software, can we also have free periods?"
