Isn't it a shame this whole thread exists. Why take a really good idea, fixing/rebuilding all secondary schools, and force the people involved to have to choose their IT aliances to get it. Seperate out the projects, have a building programme that looks at buildings, and then have an IT programme that asseses and upgrades failing IT departments/systems/approaches. I have never been checked on what I do in school by any authority other than school managers, and although I am the expert employed to manage the IT direction of the school, it would be good to know that someone is checking on me and others, stopping schools getting into the IT mess that BSF is trying to fix on the back of the buildings projects in the first place.
That is all.
