The paragraph below is loosely quoted from ISOC-NY's notice.

An exploration of k12 activities and goals in the metropolitan area vis a vis the internet. Reports will be presented by local ISOC members and teachers in the high schools. What are the technical, social, and content issues that teachers have been experiencing? Madeline Slovenz will report on her experience as a teacher at Frederick Douglass Literacy Center in Bedford Stuyvesant. Chris Lehman will report on his experience as a teacher at The Beacon School in Manhattan. Randy Wright will report on his activities as technical consultant to the high schools in cooperation with LXNY, the local free software users group.

If you wish to bring free software to any school this is a good meeting to come to. This week LXNY will be in at least one public school to help with the transition from proprietary source secret systems to free systems. If you cannot make this ISOC-NY meeting but can do some work in the schools please send an email to secretary@lxny.org. Include the title of a work of art dealing with New York City Public Schools in the subject line.
