Blair gov offers half-price PCs to teachers

No copying the school's software now

The government has selected 19 PC vendors in the UK for a scheme to subsidise computers for teachers. Under the aptly-named Computers for Teachers scheme, teachers in UK schools can buy a half price PC from any of the recommended suppliers. Those chosen include Evesham Micros, Viglen, Tiny, Centerprise, Elonex, RM and Hi-Grade. The £20 million joint effort from the Department for Education and Employment and the British Educational Communications and Technology Association will run for three years. A full list of suppliers for the programme can be found here. ® Related stories: Truants rewarded with £1K notebooks It's Time to give away software Half of UK schools are software pirates
