Sounds like a great idea to me, but I would caution that you first run
the ideas you have by a few teachers (in the wild) so that what you
are proposing will be what they have all just heard from schools.
(remember they all just had to go visit two schools each as part of
their duties...)

You would of course strengthen your case even more if you could get a
real live teacher or two along to this meeting.... Having a teacher
there saying "look I can do this with this Ubuntu thing, I could use
this with my kids like X and it would increase what the kids knowledge
by Y".

I realise that I may well be preaching to the choir here but thought I
might mention it.
