Yes; it's a rather hard problem to solve. One solution
might be to first introduce teachers to the wonderful
world of tools like Python/Scheme as part of the
process of introducing them to GNU/Linux; I am sure
that motivated math/science teachers would have
absolutely no difficulty in assimilating a virtually
algebraic and syntax-free language like Scheme. Once
we have the teachers hooked, we might thinking of
spreading the movement down towards the students.
