Your imagination must not be very good. Look at what the k12ltsp project
is doing and the success they have had at converting schools to
Fedora-based Linux and thin client terminals. Their main web page is
always out of date, but look here: http://www.k12ltsp.org/phpwiki/
and at their mail list archives. Everyone seems to agree that the money
saved can be put to much better educational uses.
