Robert Santuci Posted over 3 years ago Open Source + Education = A Brighter Future I really have to agree with Clint. Why spend money on things that you can get for nothing? Dealing with Open Source will do two things: 1) save money and 2) instill a sense of community among the students / users. They will see what a community can do if they work together and contribute. My dad started the first high school curriculum in Western New York back in the 60s. He did it with no budget. How? He solicited the banks in the area and convinced them to donate their old hardware. The school got computers, the banks got tax write-offs, the students got an education. I really think Clint is on to something. Great piece, Clint.
