Hi Scott,

I'm open to anything that will help create the best atmosphere for 
teachers to communicate with each other.  Since there is probably 
differences in curriculum between the US, Canada and other countries I 
thought a bbs with multiple forums would work.  I know in Canada there 
may be differences provincially as well.

Since the tech side shares very similiar problems/ideas would the 
teachers side be worth seperate forums or just use an email list like 
this one?
