I've just spoken to John on the phone. Although it isn't certain whether
the meeting will happen, I have offered to give a short presentation.

The topics will be:
> What is free software?
> What can it do for schools/teachers/students?
> What support is there for schools/teachers/students now?
> What support should there be for schools/teachers/students in the future?

I can certainly talk in general terms about the benefits of Free Software.
However, I'm less able to give useful information about the other points
(this is really Aiden Delaney's pet project). Can anyone out there give
me some useful suggestions? Note that these issues apply both to the
office needs of schools as well as the software used by their pupils.
