How do you get to those parents? Through the schools? ..Wait, isn't it the
schools that are not ready to change?

I think it varies with the country and perhaps the State. In Australia
we have "Parent-Teacher Associations", which could be the best place to
reach parents directly.

Also, the degree of autonomy of individual schools can vary a lot with
the country and the state. Marc is, I believe, in Canada, which may have
quite a different system than in the USA, for example.

One person with experience getting free software into schools is
Christian Einfeldt, a California lawyer and free software activist, who
is based in San Francisco. Ian will remember Christian from that Linux
expo we attended in San Diego some years ago. He's very active on
Twitter these days; among other things, he talks about his successes
(and failures) getting free s/w into schools.
