    "the requirement to have centralised ICT services would be a backward step for several schools which have developed their own effective IT systems. A restrictive, centralised IT contract would reduce the flexibility to meet the needs of students and parents."

    The NAACE article is pretty pro-BSF, though does make a good case about the lack of change-management.

    "The arguments in favour of a managed service are well understood and increasingly accepted" - Umm... perhaps not by those who understand school ICT needs...
