"Sick of good old Golden Rule days? Break out of the educational
box. Try Libre Software School Days. Evolved from continuing
mailing list discussions in Italy and France throughout the summer
of 2000, the Libre Software School Day group's mission is to assist
Linux user groups (LUGs) and non-governmental organizations (NGOs)
in enlightening school administrators about free software's utility
through educational materials and demonstrations of free, or
"These events are locally organized by local NGOs and LUGs. One
such event, planned for January, 2001, is a demonstration for the
teachers' association of Clermont-Ferrand, France, according to
Raphael Calvelli, one of Libre Software School Day's organizers.
Similar events are in the planning stage for Binghamton, N.Y., and
Centralia, Wash. sometime in 2001."
"The organization is currently only active in Italy, through
Software Libero per la Scuola, in France through Association Pour
la Promotion et la Recherche en Informatique Libre (APRIL, the
Association for Promotion and Research in Libre Computing) and the
Association Francophone des Utilisateurs de Linux et des Logiciels
Libres (AFUL, the Association of French-Speaking Users of Linux and
Free Software), and in Colombia through Software Libre y
Educación en Colombia (SLEC, Free Software and Education in
Colombia). Belgium may be next on the list, Calvelli says."
