doing a "yum install TeacherTool" got it for me on k12ltsp 1.1.1


This a cool script. Hardly a hack. It solves alot of problems for ltsp 

I was about to write something similar until I came accross this. 
Looking at your code, I think my solution would have been way over 
engineered. (was thinking SOAP/tomcat server with java gui front end)

The only stuff I'd add to it is the use of the ltspinfo & ltspinfod that 
came with 4.x to remotely reboot or shutdown a client.
You could aslo use it to probe remote kernel things in the /proc files 
system for client hardware info.

Here's a screenshot of my changes
